The major mentoring activity of the year is the mid-winter GERRAF Winter Retreat where Fellows, Board of Review and invited faculty gather for an intensive 3-day program of project reviews, scientific presentations, and related educational seminars/courses. The Retreat is held in January/February.
In addition to the formal mentoring events, retreats include informal and social activities to help participants get to know each other on a personal level.
The 2016 GERRAF Winter Retreat is scheduled February 2-4, 2016 at La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla, California. More information will be posted in the summer once an agenda is finalized.
