The Hope Center Annual Retreat provides an opportunity to go off-site for a day, focus on Hope Center research, and learn more about transnational 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.
