What is Pierre Morell Neuroscience Research Retreat?

The Pierre Morell Neuroscience Retreat (PMNR, formerly Pierre Morell Research Day) was established in 2004 to honor the memory of Dr. Pierre Morell (1941-2003). Dr. Morell was the director of the Neuroscience Curriculum (formerly Neurobiology Curriculum) from 1978-1988 and was integral to the growth and prestige the program has achieved. The Pierre Morell Neuroscience Research Retreat is an entirely student run event that allows all current students in the Neuroscience Curriculum to showcase their most recent work. Additionally, the students nominate and vote on the invited speaker, allowing us to hear the guest’s most exciting research. PMRD includes a one night stay at The Summit Center at Haw River State Park, various seminars, lunch and dinner, a poster session, fun activities, cocktail hour and student, postdoctoral, and faculty speakers. Current PMNR Committee Student Representatives are Amber Kline, Christiann Gaines, Sean Gay, Harper Fauni, and Nancy Sey. For more information on past PMRDs…
