Annual Retreat

SAVE THE DATE: Neurobiology Retreat, September 28-30, 2022
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.

Past Retreats


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!
