The 2019 conference themes include:
- Adaptive Immunity
- Host-Pathogen Interactions
- Infectious Diseases and Inflammation
- Innate Immunity
- Microbes and the Mucosa
- Molecular Basis of Infection
- Systems Biology
- Vaccines/Therapeutics/Diagnostics/Public Health
Researchers, clinicians and veterinarians will be attending, with a strong emphasis on promoting student attendance and participation.
