Attend the retreat, then, give us your feedback! Take the 2012 Broad Retreat Survey.
Registration is closed.
The Eighth Annual Broad Retreat will be held on November 13 and 14 at The Joseph B. Martin Conference Center, housed in the New Research Building on the Harvard Medical School, Longwood Campus. As in past years, the 2012 retreat is an opportunity to learn about the scientific work that is underway throughout the Broad community from a variety of short talks as well as poster presentations. It is also a chance to meet and mingle with your fellow Broad colleagues, whether they work across the cubicle or across the river.
The retreat is FREE and open to Broad staff, affiliates, associate members and their labs.
The two-day Broad Retreat will feature short talks, poster sessions, a cocktail hour, and the opportunity to meet and exchange information with your Broad colleagues away from the pressures of labs, offices and regular meeting schedules.
The retreat brings together Broadies from diverse disciplines, and encourages a personal exchange of information, ideas, and inspiration.
This year, various Broad programs, platforms, and groups have informational tables throughout the conference center, showcasing major projects or offerings. Stop by to check out what’s new or simply say "Hello!" and connect with the Broadies representing their group.
