The 2022 MCB Research retreat will begin today. MCB community members are heading to the beach town of North Falmouth, Massachusetts. Activities will include poster sessions, research presentations, social events, games, an awards ceremony, and many opportunities for people in the MCB community to meet each other and learn about science happening in the department.
New faculty members Ryan Nett and Jeeyun Chung, who officially arrives in January 2023, will give presentations introducing their research.
Our department would also like to welcome all incoming MCB community members, including 20 first-year MCO graduate students. They hail from four different continents and have a wide range of interests in computational biology, cell biology & development, neuroscience, and immunology. The arriving graduate students say they are looking forward to joining the Harvard research community and exploring interdisciplinary topics in biology.
“On behalf of the MCO community we are excited to welcome the 2022 G1 MCO students to the MCB retreat,” says MCB faculty and MCO program director Craig Hunter. “The retreat is a fabulous opportunity to meet students, postdocs, and faculty, to share our passion for science, and commiserate with older MCO graduate students about your foreordained loss to the faculty in the annual volleyball match (good luck!).”
The MCB department would like to wish everyone a happy and productive academic year.
Please join us at the retreat and take a moment to greet the incoming graduate students and new members of the MCB labs!
