The Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology hosts an annual conference and retreat every September. This weekend getaway is an exciting opportunity for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students to meet and discuss science in an informal setting. The 2017 retreat will be held Friday, September 16th – Sunday, September 18, 2017 at the beautiful Horseshoe Bay Resort in Marble Falls, TX. Located on beautiful, constant-level Lake LBJ in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, this premier resort offers a great escape from daily life in the lab while about an hour outside of town.

The retreat includes research talks, poster sessions and a number of casual get-togethers that give ICMB members a chance to catch up with the exciting research going on in the ICMB community. The weekend away also provides ICMB members some time to unwind and explore some great recreational activities including:
