After the intense activity of the New Orleans ACS meeting, the York group had a retreat to North Florida, near Gainesville, the homes of UFL collaborators Adrian Roitberg and Michael Harris who joined in discussions. As a result, the York lab has initiated new collaborative projects that will be ongoing and require more regular meetings. The retreat itself combined discussions, brainstorming sessions, and team-building activities (AGENDA). The outcome is that the group has developed a strategic plan with specific goals and set milestones for the upcoming year.


The group got together at 5am to start driving down to Florida. Newly Invigorated from a very successful conference at the 255th ACS meeting in New Orleans, the team began driving and discussing about what to in the coming year. Topic highlights from the trip included exploring the Homosassa wildlife state park, swimming with manatees at the sanctuary, and touring Rainbow River via kayak and snorkel.
