Members and Friends,

Join us again for our Mini Symposium on May 23rd, 2017.  This mid-year event of the Center for Inflammation & Mucosal Immunology this year will feature 4 keynote speakers from the field of mucosal immunology.

We will start the day with sign in and coffee at 8:10AM before beginning the program at 8:30AM in C1-7 Communicore.  Boxed lunches will be available at 1:00PM to take with you or enjoy on the north and south balconies of Communicore or next door in the Broad-Bussel Atrium of the Biomedical Sciences building, while visiting with attendees.  Registrations is CLOSED!, REGISTER HERE!

Our Center is growing towards the visible goal of becoming a preeminent center of mucosal immunology among the current centers in the US. Thus, all PI’s are highly encouraged to reach out and work with your peers in order to prepare proposals for program projects and be proactive in assisting researchers towards common goals. Burgeoning collaborations between our members and UF Health Cancer Center are expanding research into host-microbiome and cancer. It is an exciting time here at UF to be part of such an effort. None of this would be possible without the support and guidance of our members who contribute indirect costs and the leadership of UF, especially Dr. Hromas and Dr. Guzick who constantly support our research efforts to reach ever higher goals.

Thank you all, and I look forward to seeing you at the Mini Symposium!
