The Stanford Pathology Research Retreat

Held annually, the purpose of the retreat is to permit all of the Department's 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, as well as enhance prospects for additional funding of such activities.

Health Disparity Research is a newly awarded category for this year’s retreat which welcomes studies with a particular focus on health differences that are closely linked with social, economic, geographic and/or environmental disadvantage. By defining a new award category, we want to recognize the impact that such determinants have on health outcomes of specific populations.
