Annual MSTP Retreat

Our Retreat was held on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan at the Blue Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. It proved to be a wonderful combination of intellectual stimulation, relaxed conversations and fun!

We enjoyed four great sessions:

  • Sridhar Rao, MD, PhD – "Gene Expression in Development and Disease"
  • Michelle Battle, PhD – "Using Three-Dimensional Organoid Culture to Study Gastrointestinal Development and Disease"
  • Jason Jarzembowski, MD, PhD – "Neuroblastoma: Why Diversity Matters"
  • MSTP Students Zach Shaheen, PhD and Steve Blinka – "Transitioning from Graduate School to Medical School: New Programs and Methods for Success"

Our retreat is a relatively short but instrumental time that stimulates the mind, relaxes the body and strengthens camaraderie. We are already looking forward to next year!
