CMB 2018 Retreat
CMB students and faculty at the 2018 retreat at the Grand Isle Lake House.

Because of our interdisciplinary nature, our CMB students have access to many events, from departmental to college-wide and programmatic.

Programmatic Events:

CMB Seminar

The CMB seminar series is a weekly forum for students to present their research-in-progress. Seminars run from September through June and are held at 11:30 am on Tuesdays in the Davis Auditorium. All students attend all and participate in seminars throughout their time in the CMB program, and faculty are encouraged to actively participate. Second year students and above present an annual formal seminar that describes their research, including Background, Methods, Results, and Discussion. CMB faculty and students submit evaluations of the student speaker after each presentation to help students improve their presentation skills.

Career Mobility Sessions

The Career Mobility Builder series is a monthly forum for graduate students and post-docs to engage with invited speakers to learn and explore different career opportunities after graduating with their doctoral degree. The forum is intended to run throughout the year, and is scheduled for the third Thursday of every month at 9:30 am. Speakers are invited from industry, government, or nonprofit organizations to discuss their workplace experiences and share their personal stories of how they landed their current position with a doctoral degree in biology/biomedical science. As the format is interactive, young professionals are highly encouraged to attend the forum and actively participate in the discussion.

Annual CMB Retreat

The CMB Program also sponsors a one-day retreat for all students and faculty usually in August.  The Retreat takes place at the Grand Isle Lake House, about 40 minutes north of Burlington on one of the islands of Lake Champlain.  The Lake House is an old Victorian style guest house situated on a strikingly beautiful location overlooking Lake Champlain to the south, with the Green Mountains to the west and the Adirondack Mountains of New York State to the east.  This location was chosen intentionally to get everyone off campus for the day and free them from other obligations.  It is a popular venue for exchanging ideas and simply socializing. The Retreat provides an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the research going on in the CMB community by listening to invited keynote speaker, selected UVM speakers and joining in the group discussions.

Webinars

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunity to learn from collegues near and far and participate in remote discussion have exploded. View this page to see upcoming webinars that might be of interest to the CMB community.
