The PMCB graduate students share their advice on succeeding in graduate school, finding housing and their favorite restaurants in Portland. Read PMCB Student Advice
The PMCB Retreat is held annually in September so that it can serve as an opportunity for orientation of incoming students, as well as a forum for research and a good opportunity for socializing. Activities include faculty talks, an afternoon poster session, mentor speed dating, and a student awards presentation. Topics for the talks include emerging research areas, strategies for successful graduate students, how to choose a mentor, how to choose a post-doc position, and careers in science. All PMCB faculty are invited to attend the retreat together with their pre- and postdoctoral trainees. This is an informal retreat, with plenty of opportunity for one-on-one discussion.
