Annual Fellows Research Retreat

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 11: THE RETREAT IS POSTPONED DUE TO HURRICANE FLORENCE

The annual Fellows Research Retreat is designed to prepare fellows considering a research career and to support those already engaged in research.

The Department expects that all first-year fellows will attend (even if you are undecided about a research career) to learn about the Department’s resources, opportunities, and expectations relevant to research. In addition, we encourage second- and third-year fellows pursuing a research-oriented career to attend.

Fellows Research Retreat 2018

The second annual Fellows Research Retreat 2018 will take place Thurs., Sept. 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the JB Duke Hotel.
