Welcome to the website for the 3rd 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 FREE.  Online registration is now closed.

ABSTRACT DEADLINE October 16th 2017

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.

Submit your abstracts here.

Oral Presentations

Select students and/or postdoctoral fellows will be chosen from the abstracts for oral presentations within the Symposium
