Welcome to the website for the 5th Annual Immune Imaging Symposium.  This symposium is hosted by the Program for Advanced Immune Bioimaging at the University of Rochester.  The symposium will provide a forum where the newest developments in understanding immune function through visualizing immunity ‘in action’ will be shared and discussed.  The goal of the symposium is to foster lively scientific discussion, exchange of ideas and future collaborations.  We have an exciting program including a distinguished group of international speakers, an interactive poster session and opportunities for oral presentations from students and postdoctoral fellows.

Registration is FREERegister here. Preregistration Required

With short talks selected from posters


ABSTRACT submission is now closed

The poster session will highlight the science carried out by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.  Applicants are encouraged to submit abstracts on all aspects of immunity that address spatial localization, homing, cell:cell interactions, tissue structure, host-pathogen interactions.  New developments in tissue or immune visualization are encouraged at all levels including, but not limited to, multiphoton microscopy, confocal microscopy, EM, optogenetics and novel computational approaches to analysis of imaging data.

Monetary awards will be presented at the end of the symposium for the best poster presentations.

All abstracts submitted will present a poster. Select abstracts will be selected for a short talk and will be notified by October 25th, 2019.



We invite you to submit your best image for a chance to showcase your skill, research and creativity.
