Each year the Genetics Training Program holds an off-campus Annual Retreat Symposium that brings together members of the University of Utah’s Genetics research community. The Annual Retreat is open to all members of the U of U research community. All trainees present research talks; additional members of the community are invited to present posters. In addition, we invite leaders in the field of Genetics chosen based on work in an area that is especially innovative or that touches on a broad array of genetic interests to attend the Symposium, challenge us, and present a seminar. The Annual Retreat provides many opportunities for informal interactions. It is a chance for our community to engage with, learn from, and support our trainees.

The 2018 retreat will include a Plenary Talk by Monica Colaiacovo on the U of U campus, Eccles Auditorium EIHG at 4PM on May 4th, and an all day symposium on May 5th at Silver Lake Lodge, Deer Valley Resort. The symposium begins at 9:30am and will include talks by all trainees, poster presentations from the U of U genetics community, and a Plenary Talk by Gary Karpen. Meals are provided by the Genetics Training Program. If you need childcare facilities, please contact Patty Lisieski at pattyl@genetics.utah.edu
