2021 Annual BCBP Research Retreat held virtually on March 26th.
Keynote presentation: Cigall Kadoch, Ph.D.
Harvard Medical School & The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
“Chromatin regulatory mechanisms and therapeutic prospects in cancer”
The 2021 retreat will have a keynote presentation, 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
