Welcome to the 2023 Stanford Pathology Research Retreat. This event has passed but read about the results of the Retreat below.

Congratulations to over 460 students, postdocs, residents, fellows, staff, and faculty who participated in our annual retreat on Friday, November 3, 2023. A very rewarding day was spent in a terrific venue with close colleagues and good friends learning of the amazing quality and breadth of research happening in our department. There were 120 scientific presentations and 11 pathology art submissions.

The purpose of our retreat is to allow Stanford Pathology members 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, and enhance prospects for additional funding of such activities.

Cash prizes were awarded in 6 categories:

  • Students
  • Postdoctoral Fellows
  • Research Associates
  • CP Residents
  • AP Residents
  • Clinical Fellows

*Due to unanticipated record attendance registration, this year's Pathology Department Research Retreat has relocated to the David and Joan Traitel Building of Hoover Institution (this event was originally planned to be held at Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge). Our date has remained the same, Friday, November 3rd, 2023. We chose this location as it can accommodate the number of attendees and is a quick walk from the Lane Building. This decision was to ensure we can accommodate all our Pathology Faculty, Staff, Students, and Trainees in one location.  We did not anticipate this much excitement, the number of submitted abstracts, registered attendees, and overall growth in our Pathology community. We look forward to seeing you at the retreat!
