Event description

Description

The objective of this joint meeting is to highlight new research in the Infections & Immunity area from groups working in London and elsewhere in the UK. The meeting aims to encourage free exchange of ideas, cross-disciplinary interactions and new collaborations. Two poster sessions will provide a forum for Postdocs and students to present their work. If you would like to submit a poster, please send your abstract to events@crick.ac.uk and we will be in touch with further details. Drinks and light finger food will accompany the poster session on Monday evening.
