2012 Medical School Research Retreat - Stem Cells & Regenerative MedicineRegistration for the Annual Medical School Research Retreat sponsored by the Medical School Research Committee is now open. All faculty, graduate students, and fellows are invited to attend the retreat, which will be held 8 a.m.–4 p.m., Oct. 9 at the Sarofim Research Building, Institute for Molecular Medicine.

This year the event will include a thematic symposium on Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, a Graduate Student Education Committee sponsored poster session, a Clinical and Translational Sciences Award forum, and a New Investigator series designed to highlight the work of new faculty members.

Dr. Joseph Takahashi, UT Southwestern Medical Center, will discuss “Transcriptional Architecture and Dynamics of the Mammalian Circadian Clock” in the keynote address.

The purpose of the retreat is to inform and promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and it is a unique opportunity to learn more about the research conducted on our campus and an excellent way to interact with your colleagues and peers.

Abstracts are now being accepted for the poster session, and awards will be given for the top three places that demonstrate outstanding and innovative research that has the potential to contribute to the advancement of medical science and health care.
