The Pharmacology Program holds a retreat each year in the Spring --
usually two days at a country inn. Members of the Program gather for a
series of informal scientific talks and poster presentations by students and
postdocs, describing their research activities. The retreat also provides a
relaxed setting for social and sporting activities that provide graduate
students with an opportunity to get better acquainted with postdocs and
faculty members in the Program.

THE ANNUAL CORNELL PHARMACOLOGY FACULTY/STUDENT BASKETBALL GAME
The annual Faculty-Student Basketball game, a time honored tradition held each year at the Pharmacology Retreat, was won, once again, by the faculty. In this year's contest, the Faculty recognized they were outmanned as they assembled in advance of the tip off. Shown here in before and after photos, the Faculty seemed flummoxed as they were trying to decide who could guard the talented and superiorly conditioned students. But the disarray soon faded, as the faculty hit upon the idea that would prove the difference maker. Realizing that their superior intellect and experience could be used to their advantage, the faculty decided to adopt a zone defense, which they executed with precision and guile. The zone proved so effective that the faculty were able to hold the student team to two baskets. On offense, Yueming "Magic" Li (shown here = see below) directed the offense and Tony "Bird" Sauve led all scorers.
