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 retreat and grant review workshop retreats.  

Annual CoBRE Research Retreat:

The annual research retreat provides us an opportunity to come together as a research community to discuss the latest research in our laboratories supported by CBSD. The retreat 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.

Registering for the Annual CBSD Research Retreat: The 3rd annual CoBRE research retreat will be held September 5-7, 2014 at the Double Arrow Resort, Seeley Lake, MT.  Register here.

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.

Registering for "Hot Water" Grant Review Workshop: registration is currently closed.  Please e-mail cathy.beecher@umontana.edu to inquire about upcoming workshops.

CBSD hosts its semi-annual "Hot Water" Grant Review Workshop at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort, where individual grant proposals are peer-reviewed and discussed in detail by faculty from basic and applied biomolecular, chemical, cellular and biomedical sciences and related disciplines at the University of Montana, Montana State University, and the McLaughlin Research Institute.

"Between our campuses, we have a great deal of expertise with grant writing and service on study panel...There have already been a number of successes that have come out of the Hot water study panel." -Michael Franklin, Montana State University

"As a younger investigator this meeting was extremely productive. I had the chance to receive feedback from professionals outside my area of knowledge and this type of input is priceless during the process of grant writing...this has been the most positive initiative I encountered at the UM in terms of research development. During the few hours we met I was able to observe and learn basic strategies that it would take years for me to master and be successful." - Alex Santos, University of Montana
