Participants of the second annual Biochemistry Department Retreat

The second annual Biochemistry Departmental Retreat was held at the Kempenfelt Centre on August 30-31st, 2017. The retreat not only allowed the Department to celebrate our newest scientific discoveries, but also to allow everyone to see old friend and meet new colleagues. It also allowed incoming graduate rotation students to sample all of the exciting science that is happening throughout the Department. This year, the retreat focused on grad students and included scientific presentations from 21 trainees. In addition, we heard Professor Haley Wyatt talk about her exciting work in the field of DNA repair. Other highlights were the poster session where grad students, postdocs and undergrads got to show off their latest findings, the photo scavenger hunt which tested the ingenuity and creativity of the various participating teams, and of course the evening bonfire, which included a spectacular sun set.
