Annual Research Retreat
March 7-8, 2013
In the spring, program faculty and students escape to the Texas Hill Country to enjoy professional and social activities away from the laboratory setting. This is just one of the many activities designed to enhance the training of our students and postdocs. This year's retreat was no different. Thanks to all who participated and helped out with the retreat. The scientific exchange and social interactions were tops.
Posters and talks presented by both graduate students and postdocs were judged for awards. Special thanks to all the judges and to Rich Kulmacz for his help in reporting the scores! Congratulations to all the post docs and graduate students on giving superb oral and poster presentations.
