The Annual Neuroscience Retreat takes place each fall and is open to students (all graduate programs), post docs and faculty engaged in Neuroscience Research. The retreat is organized by graduate students and coordinated by the Office of Neuroscience Research. Administrative assistance is provided by the McDonnell Center for Systems Neuroscience, the McDonnell Center for Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology, and the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences.
The Retreat program includes short talks, keynote talks, "table topics" and a poster session. The Neuroscience Retreat is a great opportunity for all to share research findings, socialize, identify labs for rotation and otherwise engage.
Introduced to the Retreat in 2016, NeurOlympics is a competition of mind, strength, speed, and endurance. NeurOlympics is a neuroscience/lab/WashU themed trivia event that brings together graduate students, post-docs, and faculty members from different cohorts, fields, and departments. Teams will have 4-6 members and a faculty captain and will compete for ultimate bragging rights and lovely gold, silver, and bronze medal prizes.
NeurOlympics will take place on Thursday evening (day 1 of the Retreat).
For any questions about NeurOlympics, please contact Ashley Nielsen.
