Annual Retreat

Neurobiology Retreat, September 25 - 27, 2024 (Wednesday - Friday)

Neurobiology hosts an annual retreat for our community of neuroscientists, traditionally at the Holiday Inn in Wrightsville Beach, NC. The formal scientific component of the annual retreat includes a distinguished guest speaker, faculty, postdoc and student talks, and several poster sessions. Informal components of the retreat include casual scientific discussions, a student-hosted dinner for the guest speaker, highly anticipated student and faculty skits, live music, and heavy socializing.

The retreat is a student-organized event: fourth year students take the lead role in planning the retreat and, with input from the entire student body, select a speaker, choose the venue, and decide important aspects of the scientific and social planning.

Keynote speakers:

  • Adam Hantman: Associate Professor, UNC-CH
  • Cynthia Hsu: Assistant Professor, Fresno State University
