IMP retreat 2017

We had the pleasure of hosting Dr. Yasmine Belkaid, from the National Institute of Health (NIH) to present the keynote address on homeostatic immunity to the microbiota. We also heard from four new faculty members of IMP, Dr. Julie Blander, Dr. Virginia Pascual, Dr. Steve Josefowicz, and Dr. Juan Cubillos-Ruiz. Students and post-docs gave talks ranging from Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogenesis, immune responses to viral infections, auto-immunity, tumor immunology, and mucosal immunology. On Thursday night, we were entertained with the wonderful singing voices of people from the department by bringing back karaoke after several years. To top it off, we had a particularly warm couple of days to enjoy the fall colors in our new IMP T-shirts that were handed out to everyone.
