The annual Neuroscience Retreat is open to all in the Washington University Neuroscience Community regardless of graduate program, department, or campus.
The Retreat is organized by graduate students in different programs, and is intended to foster scientific and social interaction among students, post docs, and faculty.
Thursday October 1 – Friday October 2, 2020
This year’s Retreat will be on line – stay tuned for details!
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 typically includes short talks, keynote talks, “table topics”, a poster session and NeurOlympics. The 2020 Retreat program is yet to be finalized – stay tuned!
Thanks to those who submitted designs, and to everyone who voted!

Please register by Thursday September 10 if you plan to attend.
Students and Post Docs: Submit an abstract to be considered for a short talk. Abstracts are reviewed by committee with multiple selection criteria including scientific merit, approach, graduate program (with an aim to feature multiple programs) and diversity.
Deadline: Wednesday August 12, 11:59pm CST
Faculty members: There will be an opportunity for faculty members to engage with grad students looking for rotations or post doc opportunities. Stay tuned for additional details.
Grad students and post docs who give short talks on their research conducted at WashU are eligible to compete for a Tom Thach Award.
This year’s virtual Retreat will include a session for students to meet with professors, to help students as they identify labs for rotation or post doc opportunities. Stay tuned for additional details.
