Welcome to the website of the 3rd Southeastern Immunology Symposium.  This symposium, which will be hosted by Emory University School of Medicine, will provide a forum where the newest developments in basic, translational and clinical immunology will be shared with the goal of fostering increased relationships and collaborations.  To this end, fifteen leading faculty from institutions across the southeast will present their work.  Additionally, three distinguished keynote speakers, including Drs. Rafi Ahmed (Emory University), David Artis (University of Pennsylvania) and Philippa Marrack (University of Colorado - Denver) will present their most recent advances.  An interactive dinner and poster session will be a main feature of the program, with three select posters chosen for oral presentation.
