About the Retreat

The Genes and Development Program (G&D), the Epigenetics and Molecular Carcinogenesis Program (EMC), and the Department of Genetics will hold their second joint retreat April 13-15, 2015, at Camp Allen in the Texas Piney Woods near Navasota. Students, postdocs, and faculty of both graduate programs, the research staff of the Genetics Department and all other G&D labs, and first year graduate students doing rotations in program labs are invited to participate.

The joint retreat offers trainees an outstanding opportunity to learn about the science being conducted in EMC and G&D Program labs, to foster new collaborations, to develop scientific presentation skills, and to meet and get to know each other, the faculty and other researchers in a relaxed setting.

With the goal of facilitating scientific exchange and interactions among members of all participating labs, the 2015 retreat will feature trainee and faculty research talks, two poster sessions, keynote addresses by invited guest speakers, breakout sessions on career development topics, recreation and social time. All trainee research poster and platform talks will be judged by faculty for awards. Registration for the 2015 retreat will start in January 2015.
