2022 Annual BMS Retreat
September 23-25, 2022
 
Start: ~2:00pm, Friday, September 23
End: ~1:00pm, Sunday, September 25
 
The BMS retreat is open to faculty and students in BMS-affiliated labs.  Students from other programs and postdocs/SRAs are also invited, but preference will be given to BMS students and faculty should we reach capacity.  We are currently booked for 130 people, but depending on UCSF COVID policy, may need to cut to below 100.  If we do, we will consider BMS students and faculty first and on a first come, first serve basis.

We also encourage you to bring your families if you feel comfortable doing so.  We plan to provide a sitter service for families with younger children.
