Granlibakken Host-Microbe Annual Retreat

The annual UC Davis Research Retreat on Host Microbe Interaction brings together the community of UC Davis researchers interested in any aspect of the interaction of microbes with vertebrate, invertebrate or plant hosts to foster multidisciplinary work, exchanges and collaborations. The scientific program includes oral presentations from faculty, students and postdocs. The venue for this event is the Granlibakken Conference Center and Lodge, which is just minutes away from spectacular Lake Tahoe. An overnight stay at this setting ensures ample opportunity for interaction between faculty, postdocs and students during their joint meals and at the evening poster session.
