Pharmacology Retreat 2009

Pharmacology Retreat 2009

The annual Pharmacology Graduate Program Retreat is held each spring outside of New York City and features talks by 3rd and 5th year students and a poster session for other students and postdocs. The 2009 retreat on May 1-2 was again held at the Skytop Lodge & Resort in the Poconos in Pennsylvania. Members of the Tan Lab presented their chemical biology research on diversity-oriented synthesis and rational drug design. The scientific meeting was complemented by a wide range of activities, including a fierce Tan lab doubles ping pong match that went late into the night!
