  • I attended the retrovirus meeting at CSHL. The meeting was very well organized. CSHL is a small, quiet, and scenic research facility. The accomplishments that have happened at CSHL are impressive to say the least.
  • Good conference facilities. Beautiful surroundings. Food is only OK though. And there are limited things to do with down time. Especially if it's not nice out.
  • This lab was formerly called the Eugenics Record Office. The ERO led the effort to pass eugenical sterilization laws throughout America beginning in 1910, after it was established by Charles Davenport. Tens of thousands of Americans were subjected to forced sterilization because of this center. The work done in this lab was cruel and unconstitutional. Please do not celebrate this institution. It's evil!
  • Took the tour just for the Pok√©mon Go! gym but actually enjoys what I saw there, 5 stars
  • Very well organised and even fun meeting.
