32nd Annual Plant Molecular Biology Retreat

The PMB Retreat is a weekend-long event held at the beginning of each academic year. The program is designed to highlight the research activities of new consortium members - academic and corporate scientists - and to introduce these members to North Carolina's community of plant molecular biologists. The program includes research lectures given by consortium members, a keynote address by an internationally renowned scientist, and informal "chalk talks" presented by faculty, postdoctoral research associates, graduate students and corporate scientists.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Hailing Jin, University of California, Riverside

Capstone Speaker: Dr. Nate Storey, Plenty

More Information

All participants are encouraged to present a Chalk Talk (an informal presentation) on their current research or ideas for future research. In keeping with the spirit of chalk talks, no formal posters will be allowed, but a minimal number of prepared figures may be used in the chalk talks if the speakers consider them essential. Chalk talks are great vehicles for communication.
