Annual Neuroscience Retreat
An especially popular event is the Annual Neuroscience Retreat, which is held each fall semester. This well-attended event includes a mixture of academic, social, and outdoor activities in a relaxed setting and attractive environment. The informal atmosphere encourages interactions among students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty from different departments and different subdisciplines. The Neuroscience Retreat is planned by students, and coordinated by the Office of Neuroscience Research. It is sponsored by the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience, the McDonnell Center for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, and the Division of Biology & Biomedical Sciences.
