Annual Neuroscience Graduate Group Retreat
Each year, faculty, postdocs and graduate students attend a 2-day retreat sponsored by the Neuroscience Graduate Program and organized by the graduate students. All students, along with faculty and postdocs, have the opportunity to present 10-15 minute research talks over the two-day event. In addition, the students hand-pick and invite a neuroscientist from another University as a keynote speaker for the retreat. A highlight of the weekend is the banquet and part, which usually features games and neuroscience trivia.
Past retreats have been held at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center at Fallen Leaf Lake, just north of South Lake Tahoe, Granlibakken Conference Center in Lake Tahoe or the Marconi Conference Center off Highway 1 near Point Reyes.
