Each year the Department of Human Genetics organizes a one-day academic retreat for members of the scientific community to gather together and share about the latest advances in their fields of study. Prestigious guest speakers are often invited to present alongside distinguished members of our own department. Poster sessions are held in which students and postdocs showcase the wide breadth of research that is conducted here at UCLA. The event provides a great opportunity for academia to socialize and network with their peers, while celebrating the accomplishments we have achieved thus far.
