The Department of Human Genetics Fall Retreat is an annual event that brings together faculty, students, fellows and staff together for a program of scientific discussion and social interactions. The events include poster sessions, talks by trainees and faculty and a keynote address from an invited speaker who is a leader in the field of human genetics. The retreat is generally held in the Fall over a 2 day period at an off-campus site. During the free time, attendees have an opportunity to informally gather and engage in a variety of activities, including hiking, team sports, and bonfire.
The 2019 annual DHG fall retreat will be held September 27-29, 2019 at the MacMullan Center, next to the shores of North Higgins Lake in Roscommon, Michigan.
