        Annual Immunology Conference


For the last 25 years, the Center for Immunology has hosted a research conference for students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty to focus on science away from the distractions of everyday life.  Over the years the conference has been co-supported by several corporate sponsors, the current sponsor of the 2023 retreat was BioTechne.  The conference is an excellent opportunity for the participants to showcase their current research projects to each other and to the broader immunology research community at the University of Minnesota.

The two-day conference offers a series of short talks highlighting the work of pre and post-doctoral trainees, invited speakers, and faculty.  All student attendees present a poster in an evening poster session showcasing their work.  The first night is capped off with a dinner and a social mixer that includes dancing and the musical stylings of "The Outliers", a cover band that features 2 of our very own faculty, Dr. Yoji Shimuzu, and Dr. Dan Mueller.
