Expanded Selection of Retreats in 2014!
The Society for Investigative Dermatology (SID) is committed to fostering the careers of the next generation of scientists. To that end, we have expanded our programmatic offerings to serve additional cohorts.
In 2014, we are pleased to offer an expanded selection of Retreats: the SID Junior Research Faculty Retreat; the SID PhD Post-Doctoral Retreat; and the SID Resident Retreat for Future Academicians. These combined offerings are designed to provide support along the career path for those currently in training, and continue on as young academics seek tenure.

These investigators are typically junior faculty in cutaneous biology and dermatology research who hold tenure track positions but are not yet tenured. The overall goal is to foster networking, collegiality, collaboration, and peer-to-peer mentoring, while building support networks across institutions.
The Retreat will take place in conjunction with the SID 2014 Annual Meeting in Albuquerque, May 7 – 10, and is scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday, May 6, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., followed by an attendee dinner.
