Pharmacology Retreat 2004

The annual Pharmacology Graduate Program Retreat is held each spring at a site outside of New York City and features talks by 3rd and 5th year graduate students and a poster session for other students and postdocs. The 2004 retreat was held on March 4-5 at Arden House in Harriman, NY. Justin Potuzak presented a talk on the diversity-oriented synthesis of spiroketal libraries for use in chemical biology and drug discovery research.
