Nebraska Gateway to Nutrigenomics 6th Annual Retreat rescheduled for June 9, register now

02 May 2014    

Each year the Nebraska Gateway to Nutrigenomics hosts a free, day-long retreat for faculty, postdocs, students, staff, industry partners, and other interested parties to provide an opportunity to explore relevant topics and to network with fellow researchers in academia and industry. This year’s theme is "Computational Science Meets Nutrigenomics” and will feature three internationally recognized experts: Eric Alm, associate professor Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Melvin Reichman Senior Investigator Lankenau Institute for Medical Research Chemical Genomics Center. Vasant Honavar, professor and Edward Frymoyer Chair of Information Sciences and Technology Pennsylvania State University, was scheduled to present but will be unable to join us at this time.

Generous support for this retreat is provided by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Agricultural Research Division "Big Idea Seminars Program," the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research & Economic Development, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and the Department of Nutrition and Health Sciences.
 
This year, the annual NGN Retreat will be held Monday, June 9, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Nebraska East Union, Cottonwood Room.
 
The afternoon will offer the opportunity for conversation with the speakers at a reception for all attendees. Concurrently, the Nutrigenomics Poster Competition will be open. The competition is judged by NGN faculty and provides graduate students and postdoctoral researchers an opportunity to showcase their research. Certificates and cash awards will be presented at the end of the event for the 3 top posters based on overall presentation, oral discussion of the poster, and relevance to nutrigenomics. Graduate students and postdoctoral researchers are invited to enter a poster for the competition at the time of registration on the website.
 
This event is free, but advance registration is required. Space is limited and registrations will be filled on a first come basis. Registration will remain open until all seats are filled, but will end June 1 or until all seats are filled.
