Biennial Retreat

ISMB Retreat, 22-23 July 2021

The ISMB Retreat 2021 will take place on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd July via Microsoft Teams.

The aim of the Retreat is primarily to build connections between ISMB members, to encourage collaborations, and to celebrate our science and researchers. It includes a series of talks that provide the opportunity for students and postdocs to present their work. In addition, there will be an educational activity aiming at improving Presentation Skills, and an Escape Room social event. The keynote lectures are this year provided by:

  • Buzz Baum (MRC LMB Cambridge, UK)
  • Michael Jewett (NorthWestern University, US)
  • Debora Marks (Harvard Medical School, US)
  • Adam Nelson (Leeds University, UK)
  • Richard Ebright (Rutgers University, US)

The programme is available here: ISMB Retreat Programme

Attendance is strongly encouraged for all PhD students and postdocs at the ISMB. Attendance and registration are compulsory for all joint 4-year PhD programme students at the ISMB. Should you have any further queries, please contact the Retreat organisers on ‘ismb-admin@ismb.lon.ac.uk‘.
