At the annual Harvard Virology Retreat, program students and faculty are invited to share their research.  Student-run, the retreat features a two-day series of talks by students and faculty, a poster session, and a keynote lecture by a speaker selected by the students.  In addition to providing an excellent opportunity for students and faculty to discuss their research, the retreat plays a fundamental role in fostering the sense of community prized by the program.


In 2014, the Harvard Virology Retreat was held at the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis, on Cape Cod in Hyannis, Massachusetts on September 5-6, 2014: .  The fourth-year Virology students, who organized the retreat, invited Dr. Erica Ollman Saphire from the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California to serve as keynote speaker. Dr. Saphire's talk, titled "Filovirus Entry and the ZMapp Cocktail", focused partly on her lab's recent research on the Ebola virus.


In 2014, the retreat will be sponsored by our kind donors represented below:
