Scott Boyd and
Photo Gallery: 2019 Retreat
The Retreat is a One Day Event
The purpose of the retreat is to permit all of the Pathology department's graduate students, rotating medical students, post-sophomore fellows, residents, clinical fellows, postdoctoral fellows, research associates, instructors, faculty, including clinical educators, senior research scientists, and the new MSTP students at the School of Medicine, to become more familiar with the research that is being conducted in the department, including basic, translational and clinical projects. We hope this will facilitate new opportunities for collaborative studies and research training, as well as enhance prospects for additional funding of such activities.
The best scientific posters presented by trainees (students, residents, with separate prizes for AP & CP residents, clinical fellows or postdoctoral fellows) and research associates will be recognized with cash prizes (Total number of awards to be determined).
Please note: If your research was conducted through another department (other than the Department of Pathology) you are still welcome to attend and present your work but you will not be eligible for cash prizes.
Date: Friday — September 25, 2020
Time: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
THE RETREAT WILL NOW BE HELD ONLINE, PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE INFORMATION.
