Innate Immunity Symposium 2018:
TBD

EPIC Symposium 2018:

Date: Friday, May 18, 2018

Location: 143 Jones

nate Immunity Symposium 2017:

Date: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Time: 8:30 am to 5:00 pm (Lunch will be provided)

Location: Great Hall, Trent Semans Center, Duke University Medical Center Durham, NC

Parking and Directions: Duke South Clinics Parking Garage – Visitor. Enter from Trent Drive.

Symposium summary: Innate immunity is the body’s first line of defense against invading pathogens. While these defense mechanisms have obvious benefit for human health, innate immunity can also cause unwanted inflammation and disease. This symposium brings together scientists who seek to understand how innate immunity is initiated, regulated, and how innate immunity impacts health and disease. Attendees are invited from throughout North Carolina’s Research Triangle. Join us to present your work, learn about cutting-edge innate immunity research, and network with local colleagues.

All are invited: Scientists from NCSU, UNC Chapel Hill, NCCU, Duke University, and other local institutions are invited to register and attend.

Talks: Keynote presentations will be made by Gabriel Nuñez (University of Michigan) and Toni Darville (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill).

Oral presentations will also be made my local investigators including Mari Shinohara, Nicholas Heaton, Luigi Racioppi (Duke) and Janelle Arthur (UNC).

Registration: Attendance is free but registration is required for our planning purposes.

Poster and Oral Presentations: Registered individuals are invited to submit abstracts to be presented at a poster session during the symposium. Selected abstracts will be invited for an oral presentation.

**Abstract deadline is April 21st, 2017**

Poster presentations: Abstracts are being accepted for poster presentations. There will be one poster session to be held during lunch. The maximum poster size is 32″ x 40″. Poster board assignments will be available prior to the meeting and can also be found in the program (available at the meeting). Prizes will be awarded for the best poster.

Oral Presentations: Invited talks will be either 30 or 15 minutes long. For 30-minute talks, speakers are requested to limit their presentation to 25 minutes to permit a 5-minute discussion period. For 15 minute talks, speakers are requested to limit their presentation to 12 minutes to permit a 3-minute discussion period. If you give an electronic presentation, please load your talk onto the available computer during the break that precedes the session in which you speak. Please bring your talk on a USB memory stick. To promote a smooth transition between talks, we ask everyone to use the computers provided.

Organizers: The symposium is hosted and sponsored by the Duke Innate Immunity Group. It is organized by Gianna Hammer, Jörn Coers, Mari Shinohara, Stacy Horner, and Amanda MacLeod who can be reached at  DukeInnateImmunity@gmail.com.
