The 2015 Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis Scientific Retreat took place at the historic Mohonk Mountain House in beautiful upstate New York. This year the retreat hosted Harvard University’s Dr. Diane Mathis, who delivered an outstanding keynote on regulatory T cell control of organismal homeostasis. We also proudly welcomed Dr. Barry Sleckman and Dr. Randy Longman to the IMP program, whose talks about the research interests of their respective laboratories garnered much interest from prospective graduate rotation students. The October weather was perfect, so many chose to stretch their legs after the morning’s talks by lacing up their boots for the scenic hike up the rock scramble, and after emerging from the notorious Lemon Squeeze onto the overlook, were rewarded with a stunning view of the Shawangunk Ridge.
