Department of Molecular Medicine Annual Retreat


Each year the department holds an annual retreat, designed to introduce and update faculty, fellows, students and staff with the research focus and progress of each graduate student within the department. Students who are entering the third year and above of graduate study are required to participate by presenting a 10-minute talk, with a 3-minute question/answer session. They are eligible to compete for Research Awards. Attendance throughout the event is mandatory for all students and faculty in the Department of Molecular Medicine. Postdoctoral Fellows are strongly encouraged, but not required to participate. The event is scheduled at the end of August or beginning of September every year.

This year the retreat was held at Noah's Event Venue in San Antonio, TX.
