Welcome to the website of the 4th Southeastern Immunology Symposium. This symposium, which will be hosted by Emory University School of Medicine, will provide a forum where the newest developments in basic, translational and clinical immunology will be shared with the goal of fostering increased relationships and collaborations. To this end, fifteen leading faculty from institutions across the southeast will present their work. Additionally, three distinguished keynote speakers, including Drs. Jeffrey Bluestone (University of San Francisco), Olivera J. Finn (University of Pittsburgh) and Wayne Yokoyama (Washington University) will present their most recent advances. Interactive poster sessions will be a main feature of the program, with three select posters chosen for oral presentation.
Saturday poster sessions will highlight the science carried out by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Abstracts for the poster session should be submitted through the site. Three abstracts will be chosen for presentation during the oral sessions on Saturday and Sunday.
These and additional abstracts will receive a monetary award provided through the generous sponsorship of The American Association of Immunologists.
