CBSD Research Retreats

The Center for Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics is committed to fostering a community for biophysically informed research throughout the University of Montana (UM) research community. We do this in a number of ways, including hosting an annual research symposium and grant review workshop retreats.  

Annual CoBRE Research Symposium

The annual research symposium provides us an opportunity to come together as a research community to discuss the latest research in our laboratories supported by CBSD. The symposium includes keynote seminars by outside speakers, lectures by Project Leaders who are supported by the CBSD NIH CoBRE grant, and a selection of short talks by pilot project leaders and graduate students. We especially encourage both graduate and undergraduate students to participate in a poster session. We also have presentations from our Computational, NMR, X-ray and BioSpectroscopy Core Facilities so attendees can learn more about how these facilities can help take their research projects in new directions.

CBSD's 6th Annual CoBRE Research Symposium was held Sept. 8-9, 2017 at the University of Montana.

Semi-Annual Grant Review Workshop Retreats

This is an overnight, working meeting for those who wish to have their upcoming grant submissions reviewed prior to NIH/NSF deadlines. Typically this workshop retreat is held one month prior to major NIH/NSF deadlines: January (February deadlines) and May (June deadlines). Feedback is constructive, and everyone participates in discussion of each individual grant. Participants include faculty from basic and applied biomolecular, chemical, cellular and biomedical sciences and related disciplines at the University of Montana, and other institutions around the state.

The next Hot Water Grant Review Workshops will be Jan. 5-6, 2018 and May 4-5, 2018.
