Wayne State University and the University of Toronto

Event Description:
The C.S. Mott Center's Annual Scientific Retreat has been a gathering of basic scientists and OB/GYN clinicians to present and discuss ongoing fertility-related research conducted at the Mott Center and across Wayne State University.  In 2015, the University of Toronto's Department of OB/GYN joined with WSU's Department of OB/GYN and began the joint venture of combining their Annual Retreats and Research Days.  The combined event has provided a venue for fostering communication and collaborations between the two research institutions.  The location of the retreat alternates between the two universities. Wayne State is hosting the retreat in 2017
