Poster Sessions:

Students, staff, postdocs and PIs are invited to participate and are encouraged to submit an abstract for the poster session. Our goal is to increase interaction during the poster sessions. We are continuing with the same poster format we used last year. All posters should consist of 3 8.5 x 11 sheets - one with the hypothesis, one with data and the third with conclusions and/or future directions. This poster session style has been adopted by both the Immunology and MICaB programs with treat success. A PDF with an example of this is available for download here.

Note: Abstract submission deadline is August 30, 2014. Submit online.

The symposium subcommittee will select the best abstract from each research program area for a special opportunity to have lunch with our keynote speaker.
