Annual BMS Retreat

The BMS program holds an annual retreat in Fall to promote scientific and social interactions among the students and faculty and to welcome the new students. The retreats are held in resorts that are within driving distance from the campus but are far enough away to require overnight stays. The BMS retreat committee, comprised of the BMS program staff and two students entering their 4th year, oversees the planning and the organization of the scientific and social activities at the retreat. The scientific sessions include a Keynote lecture, oral presentations by selected faculty and students, and poster presentations by students in the BMS program.
