Scientific Retreats

Audience members

Each year, the Biology Department hosts a scientific retreat for its faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students to highlight current research. A tradition of the retreat is a poster session that encourages an interactive exchange of research in each lab. The department prides itself in fostering a community that advances research questions of interest. In addition to inviting other Boston College scientific researchers to learn about integrated approaches, the department invites guest speakers from across the country as well. These scientific retreats help to sustain our strong reputation as a research institute and strengthen a scientific community made up of members both inside and outside of the university.

These retreats reflect how everyone in our department—regardless of title, role, or experience level—contributes to the advancement of research and teaching.”
