This year's Department of Pharmacology Retreat will have an introspective focus as we share our ongoing internal research and discuss where we, as a department, are headed. Three scientific research sessions will be held, each focusing on one of the following topics: Neuropharmacology, Chemotherapy, and Cell Signaling. Faculty, Postdoctoral Associate and Graduate Student centric breakout groups will also be held as a way to foster departmental communication and new ideas and directions. As in previous years, this retreat will feature the annual Louis M. Nutter Memorial Poster Session which will feature monetary prizes for the best posters in the categories of Postdoc, Graduate Student, and Undergrad/PostBac Researchers. Finally, there will also be a networking session that will feature a panel of alumni from a wide variety of career backgrounds.
