Biotech Retreat

Annual Biotechnology Training Retreat

The Annual Biotechnology Retreat showcases the research projects of a diverse array of DEB students via five minute "STEMTalks" and a poster session that emphasizes the use of high quality infographics and science communication best practices suitable for our highly interdisciplinary community of faculty, students, industry partners and community members.

Date & Location

The Biotech Retreat is typically held on a Saturday in March or April. For many years, the event was held at the Christian Brothers Retreat Center, in the beautiful hills of the Napa Valley, and more recently has been hosted on campus at the Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility. In early January, invitations will be sent to potential participants, including program advisory committee members. DEB students should watch their inboxes for an invitation to participate in the oral and poster presentations. The audience will choose their favorites for modest prizes at the event!
