In the spring, the members of the Program (students, faculty, postdoctoral fellows, technical and administrative staff) travel to an off-campus location for a retreat. The retreat provides time for scientific presentations, informal conversation and social activities. Several of the postdoctoral fellows present brief seminars. Students mount posters describing their thesis projects, and in a relaxed atmosphere observations and technical problems are discussed. An invited scientist gives a talk and participates in the discussions. This scientist also judges the posters and selects students that receive travel awards. The awards are used to defray the cost of attendance at a national or international meeting. Some time is also spent in outdoor activities such as walks and volleyball.
is for PhD students who want to integrate clinical infectious disease problems into basic research on pathogenic mechansisms and host responses.
Boston is a great walking city. Beacon Hill, Back Bay and Newbury Street are just a few exciting destinations.
