A prominent leader in the research of immunology will be the keynote speaker for this Workshop: , MD, PhD, Professor of Medical Microbiology and Immunology at the UC Davis School of Medicine in California.
There also will be short presentations from Penn State faculty labs on their related research, and a lunch reception with a poster session for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows can share their research with attendees.
We encourage the presentation of posters on all microbe research! The registration form will ask for a working title. So, if you are interested in presenting a poster, please make sure you complete that section of the form.
