Annual DSCB Retreat 2021

The Annual DSCB Retreat will be held at Chaminade Resort again (assuming policy continues to allow us to hold this in person). The retreat is an excellent opportunity for trainees and faculty to share their research and get to know each other in a more informal setting.

Poster Session:

The poster session is scheduled to take place Friday evening on November 19. A poster session program will be prepared, so please be sure to indicate when you register whether you will bring a poster.  If multiple lab members will present separate posters, each person should sign up for an individual slot. Otherwise, to avoid double-bookings please have only one person sign up if there will be multiple presenters for the same poster.
