Welcome to the 2024 Stanford Pathology Research Retreat. The Retreat will be located at the David and Joan Traitel Building of Hoover Institution on Friday, October 11, 2024. We look forward to seeing you there!

The purpose of our retreat is to allow Stanford Pathology members to become more familiar with the research conducted in the Department, including basic, translational and clinical projects. We hope this will facilitate new opportunities for collaborative studies, research training and enhance prospects for additional funding of such activities. 

This year's retreat will be live-streamed

Even though you may not be able to attend in person please register for the retreat to receive all information to log on and join us virtually on the day of the retreat.

Join us on Friday, October 11, 2024:

  • Keynote Speaker: Dr. Stephen Montgomery

  • Pathology Art: Vote for your favorite research artwork which will be displayed throughout the event.
  • A digital version of your abstract/poster will be available to preview for the week leading up to the day of the retreat on the retreat website. This preview session accounts for 50% of the review process of your abstract.

If you wish to contribute, please share a digital image from your clinical or research work that is de-identified and aesthetically pleasing before September 9, 2024. If you have applied any manipulation to the image, it should be uniform throughout the entire image.
