Retreat 2020

The 16th Annual Broad Retreat will be held virtually from Monday, December 14  to Thursday, December 17, 2020. Attend this year’s retreat and experience the depth of Broad science while connecting with fellow Broadies. 

The retreat will take place over four partial-days. While it’s taking on a new form, it will still include keynotes, short talks, poster sessions, breakout sessions, and the opportunity to meet and talk with Broad colleagues -- this time on a virtual event platform. 

The retreat is FREE and open to all members of the Broad community, including Broad staff, affiliates, associate and institute members, and members of their labs.

The Broad Retreat is a closed meeting
for members of the Broad community.
