Annual Retreat


Each fall, the center sponsors an annual weekend retreat at a nearby resort. This year’s retreat will be at Stonewall Resort, a lakeside resort on 1,900 acres with many available activities including hiking, swimming (indoor-outdoor pool), boating, fishing, tennis, golf, etc. This extremely popular event is open to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical residents, and training faculty, and annually attracts more than 150 attendees. The retreat is a blend of academic, social, and outdoor activities. Prominent visiting scientists deliver formal presentations, followed by trainee-led discussions. Most of the weekend is devoted to relaxed and informal interactions between trainees, CNUP faculty, and the keynote speakers
