2015 CEGR Fall Retreat

Every year, the PIs leading the labs in The Center for Eukaryotic Gene Regulation (CEGR) invite their staff and families to a Fall retreat. Our faculty host a Center-wide activity outside of normal collaborative lab work and the Megameeting on Tuesdays.  This year’s event will be hosted at Shaver’s Creek on Friday, October 16th from 3-9pm.  This year we will be a fully catered event for dinner and refreshments will be available for the poster session which will be held this year as well.

• Each poster session author will be provided with a 4' x 4' poster board area and mounting velcro. The board will indicate the poster number in upper right or left corner, each side will be labeled A or B. Authors are responsible for mounting their posters and removing them as soon as the session ends. Posters left up past that time will be discarded.
• All illustrations, charts, etc., to be posted should be prepared in advance as materials for these purposes will not be
available at the meeting site. CEGR will provide velcro for the posters.
• Authors may wish to bring extra copies of their data and conclusions. No duplication facilities will be available. Authors may also wish to provide sign-up sheets or a QR code for attendees who may wish additional information, reprints, etc.
