Annual Retreat

Every year the Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Program holds a retreat for faculty and student members of the Program. Presenters include HMGGP training and non-training faculty as well as student members. Attendance is required for all students; no absences will be excused, other than emergencies approved by the Program Director. All students in their second year and beyond are required to present at the Program retreat; student presentations include both poster and platform talks. First year students are welcome to present, but it is not required.

Journal Club

During the fall and spring semesters the HMGGP students participate in a journal club. The journal club schedule will be decided early in each fall semester. All HMGGP students are required to attend and participate in journal club, including presenting articles several times per year.

Research in Progress

Beginning in their 2nd year, HMGGP students are required to give a half-hour presentation on their current research. These ‘research in progress’ talks will be given in an hour format with 2 students presenting at each session. More senior students will start the presentations in the fall of each year.

Seminar Series

During the fall and spring semesters the Human Medical Genetics and Genomics Program sponsors a Seminar Series. Seminars cover a wide range of topics by distinguished speakers. Presenters include not only HMGGP and other CU Denver and CU Anschutz faculty members, but also renowned scientists from across North America and abroad. All HMGGP graduate students are required to attend these Thursday seminars
