Neuroscience personnel, including faculty members, postdoctoral associates, graduate students, and technical staff members, are invited to attend the institute's annual retreat, held each fall in a scenic setting. The purpose of this gathering is to present recent research accomplishments and to outline future research directions. In addition, the retreat provides an informal forum to encourage and facilitate scientific interactions and discussion among institute personnel, often leading to long-term scientific collaborations. The retreat also introduces incoming graduate students to the diversity of neuroscience research in the institute and often provides advanced graduate students with the first opportunity to present results to peers and colleagues.
Information for the 2016 ION Retreat will be posted here in the future.
The Institute of Neuroscience held its 2015 retreat at the Lost Valley Education Center in Dexter, OR from Wednesday, September 16th to Thursday, September 17th, 2015.
