2021 BCBP Research Retreat Schedule

The 2021 retreat will also have short talks from graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research associates selected from abstract submissions as well as two poster sessions. Cash Prizes ($100 each) will be given for top oral, poster, and people’s choice presentations!

Posters will be presented electronically in a virtual poster hall. Each poster presenter will be also able to include a 5-minute video (PowerPoint) presentation to accompany their poster. This will be a great way for you to engage with retreat attendees for feedback and discussion.

  • Finding a postdoc
  • Applying for tenure-track positions
  • Women in science
  • Non-academic careers

There will be a limited number of slots for these breakout sessions, so be sure to register early!
