About the Retreat:

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; other 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 2019 retreat will be held overnight at The Lodges, Deer Valley Resort (map) from the afternoon of Monday, May 6 to lunchtime on Tuesday, May 7.  Meals are provided by the Genetics Training Program. The symposium will include research talks by all trainees, poster presentations from the U of U Genetics community, and Plenary Talks from Dr. Schupbach and Dr. Pasquinelli.
