CCMB Retreat 2014

One of the greatest strengths of CCMB is the synergy that emerges from our labs and the larger USC community. The Health Sciences Campus, home to several hospitals and academic departments including the full spectrum of medical and pharmacy specialties, provides a rich environment for this collaborative spirit. We have a number of events where our grad students and postdocs can come together to talk about science and socialize:

  • Journal club (12pm second Monday of the month, CCMB large conference room)
  • CCMB seminars (1pm most Fridays, CCMB large conference room)
  • USC Stem Cell seminars (12pm most Fridays during the academic year, Broad CIRM Center first floor)
  • Happy hour (4pm first Friday of the month, CCMB courtyard)
  • Joint lab meetings
  • Thanksgiving and holiday potlucks and lunar new year dumpling party
  • CCMB/Keck School of Medicine Symposium (annually)
  • CCMB retreat (annually)
  • Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry Research Day (annually in March)

You can view the CCMB calendar of events here (or subscribe via Google/iCal/etc here). We are also on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The USC Stem Cell calendar is here (or subscribe here).

As part of the T90/R90 training grant in Craniofacial Biology (PI: Dr. Michael Paine) that supports many of our graduate students and postdocs, staff from the NIDCR regularly visit CCMB to provide insight and advice regarding professional development for our early-career scholars. Various other organizations at USC also host professional development opportunities:
