Annual Neuroscience Retreat

Every year, the School of Medicine holds a Neuroscience Retreat at the Mohonk Mountain House, a two-hour drive north from New York City, for all members of the NYU neuroscience community and beyond. Faculty and students present their work through short talks and posters and take time out to enjoy the outdoors.
