2019 UCSD-Salk Retreat

Lake Arrowhead

Location and Directions

The annual retreat in Lake Arrowhead brings together the UC San Diego Division of Biological Sciences and the Salk Institute researchers, faculty, and Biology PhD students to share their work and foster a sense of community. 

Registration is now closed. If you'd like to be added to the waitlist, please contact Jennifer Roth (jhroth@ucsd.edu). Download the retreat schedule

Important Notes

The Lake Arrowhead Resort can accommodate family members and dogs for faculty. Please contact the Resort directly to make arrangements with them.  Postdocs and graduate students are expected to share a room, and therefore cannot invite family members without paying for a separate room.

You can pay a fee for a family member to join in the Retreat's buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The check-in time for Retreat participants is 3:00 PM. You will not be able to check in early unless you make special arrangements with the resort in advance.

The Resort will provide lunch and dinner on Sunday, all meals on Monday, and breakfast on Tuesday, as well as a cocktail hour each evening.
