Charles River Community Pavilion
Welcome to the Pavilion – the heart of our Short Course. Here you will find the resources, activities and attendee support that will allow you to experience the Short Course like never before, from the minute you check in until it’s time to leave.
Your Short Course experience begins as soon as you arrive. Our concierge team is dedicated to exceeding your every expectation so that you can make the most of your week. Along with helping streamline your on-site registration, our team will be on hand to help with:
• Registration questions
• Obtaining course content and supplemental materials
• Arranging additional networking opportunities
• Dinner reservations
Want to take a virtual tour through one of Charles River’s diagnostic laboratories? Or perhaps view a video tutorial on proper tissue collection? These, along with other virtual options, will be available for your viewing at the virtual station in our Internet Café.
Refuel & Recharge Station
If you need a pick me up, feel free to stop by the R&R Station and enjoy some refreshments. Forgot to charge your device? No problem. Plug in or sign out one of our mobile charging blocks and charge on the go.
Education is the focal point of the week. Be sure to make the Resource Desk one of your stops to collect additional scientific and technical materials to supplement your learning.
Short Course KICK-OFF
Come to our registration area on Sunday night to connect with colleagues, make new acquaintances, and have some fun. Enjoy refreshments and games and get pumped for an exciting week.
We understand that your work doesn’t stop just because you come to the Short Course. No worries! Just plug-in and catch up in between sessions at our Internet Café, where you can reconnect using our complimentary Wi-Fi.
Remember what it was like to be a kid? When you need a quick time-out from listening, learning and networking with peers, head over to the playground and challenge a colleague to a friendly game – anything from ping-pong to chess.
