Annual Retreat on Catalina Island


This year, Bioinformatics IDP PhD students Kikuye Koyano and Artur Jaroszewicz organized the retreat at the University of Southern California’s Wrigley Marine Science Center in Two Harbors, 20 miles offshore from Los Angeles.

During the 3-day retreat, Bioinformatics IDP graduate students presented research papers and held forums on applying for fellowships, writing letters of intent, managing graduate school funding packages, and using campus mental health resources. In addition to science, faculty and students enjoyed hiking the chaparral hills, kayaking in the bay, snorkeling in the kelp forest, and enjoying dinner overlooking the beach in Two Harbors.
