The IMP program retreat in October 2012 was held at scenic and historic Mohonk Mountain House, and was highlighted by the first time we invited an outside speaker to give the keynote lecture. This year we were fortunate enough to have Dr. Ulrich von Andrian from Harvard Medical School join us, and give a scintillating seminar on newly described adaptive features found in natural killer cells, which are lymphocytes of the innate immune system! IMP student, postdoc, and faculty talks featured topics ranging from immune regulation by T cells to class switching in B cells to pathogenesis of mycobacterium tuberculosis. A lively and interactive poster session was followed by a wonderful dinner banquet featuring organic produce, ingredients, and meats from local upstate New York farms.
