neuro party

The Neuroscience Program, in conjunction with the Department of Neuroscience, holds an annual retreat during the fall or spring semester that encourages informal interactions between faculty, students and postdoctoral fellows of the program.

This year's Neuroscience Program Retreat was held on September 15-16, 2017 at the Waterville Valley Resort. The two-day retreat featured student and postdoc talks, poster sessions, a keynote speaker, and a mock grant review session. These scientific sessions were interspersed with opportunities for socializing and meeting new members of the program.
