Annual Retreat

To be rescheduled Read More


We had looked forward to a November Retreat featuring the Hope Center Lecture (Merit Cudkowicz, Massachusetts General Hospital) and George H. Bishop Lecture (Christian Haass, Ludwig Maximilian University).  After careful consideration, the Hope Center Retreat will be rescheduled.  The Bishop Lecture will proceed (Zoom) on Thursday November 19 at 12:00pm (check the ONR Calendar for details).


The Hope Center Annual Retreat provides an opportunity to go off-site for a day, focus on Hope Center research, and learn more about translational Neuroscience outside Washington University. Hope Center faculty and members of their laboratories learn about the latest findings and future directions of member labs in the context of short talks and a poster session. Keynote lectures feature invited speakers who lead their fields with a research/clinical program aligned with the Hope Center mission. Stay tuned for the Call for Abstracts and Call for Registration in the upcoming months.
