Gene Expression and Signaling in the Immune System

  December 22, 2017  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
April 24 - 28, 2018

We are looking forward to a broad-based meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to immune system gene expression and signaling. In addition to a strong focus on lymphocyte development and adaptive immunity, this year's meeting will also emphasize the molecular regulation of innate immune responses.

The format of the meeting will include eight oral sessions and two poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data. The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site (below) as soon as decisions have been made. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs.

We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor in April.
