Dear Members & Friends,
On behalf of the Center for Inflammation & Mucosal Immunology’s Advisory Committee, thank you for your help in making our May 2018 Mini Symposium a resounding success! Attendees from various medical disciplines filled the room to listen to our featured speakers present their current research, and provided insightful questions and lively discussion. The spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration that CIMI endeavors to espouse was readily apparent and we hope that our growing programs, like the Mini Symposium and our full day Research Retreats, can continue to foster these important exchanges of ideas and research across the various medical departments at the University of Florida.
The Center for Inflammation & Mucosal Immunology is able to host events like our Mini Symposium for the University of Florida’s community due to the support of our Principal Investigators, who designate a portion of their grant IDC’s to the Center. CIMI encourages members to designate at least 2.0% of their project IDC’s to support our center. Your continued support ensures that CIMI becomes a fully self-funded and permanent fixture in the research community here at the University of Florida.
Once again, thank you to all of our attendees. Whether you’re a member or a friend, your support is what continues to facilitate the growth of our Center. We hope to see you all again soon.
The Center for Inflammation & Mucosal Immunology Advisory Committee
