The CMB Program 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.
