The 2013 CDB Retreat will be September 12th and 13th at the Kellogg biological station. Everyone associated with the CDB department and CDB labs, and every PIBS student who might be interested in CDB labs, is invited. To be clear, that includes all graduate students in a CDB lab (REGARDLESS of program affiliation), postdocs, staff, and faculty--as well as all first-year PIBS students. This retreat is an excellent opportunity to hear about research in other labs and interact with faculty, postdocs and students in the department. There will be presentations, poster sessions & lots of fun & games. There will also be prizes that will be given out for: best poster, best talk, for winning at one of the many ridiculous games & contests, and maybe for just showing up!
