The Neurobiology Graduate Program retreat is held each fall at a scenic and relaxing venue in North Carolina. Destinations include the beach and the mountains, both of which are in close striking distance from Duke University. The formal scientific component of the 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.
