NIH Postdoctoral Training Grant

Annual Retreat 
2013

 

The Annual Training Grant Retreat was held at the Faculty Club on the TSRI Campus. Each year we have an honored speaker, in June 2013 it was Dr. Velia Fowler, Professor Cell and Molecular Biology, on “Actin’ in the right direction - Reflections on a life in science”. The majority of the Trainees and most Mentors attended, and according to the Trainees they enjoyed the presentations and the chance to meet Trainees and Mentors from the other training grants.

 
   

Annual Retreat 
2011

 

The Second Annual Training Grant Retreat was held at the Faculty Club on the TSRI Campus on Oct 14, 2011. The Annual Retreat provides a forum for the Trainees in the various NIH-supported fellowship programs to meet other Trainees, Mentors, and Faculty, as well as an opportunity to present and discuss their research. The presentations were excellent and with more than 45 Trainees, Mentors, and Faculty in attendance, the question and answer sessions were very lively throughout the meeting! We were pleased to have Dr. Michael Marletta, the President Elect, as the guest speaker, where he provided a presentation on “There are no straight-line paths in science”.
