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.
September 28-30, 2022
Holiday Inn, Wrightsville Beach, NC
Keynote speaker: Shai Silberberg, PhD (NIH)

After the beach trip was canceled, we improvised a small, (masked) local retreat at The Cotton Room in Durham's Golden Belt. We missed the guest speakers and ocean views, but still had a great time sharing science. We also managed to squeeze in an outdoor happy hour at the nearby Ponysaurus brewery, enjoyed by all!
