The IgV Annual Scientific Meeting is returning this year as an in-person meeting. As always, it will be a terrific opportunity for students and early postdocs to mingle with more senior immunologists and discuss their work in a congenial atmosphere, as well as obtaining experience in oral presentation.

An exciting program is planned over two full days, with plenty of opportunities for oral and poster presentations.

Any participant attending are invited to submit an abstract to be selected for a short talk, 3 minute thesis or poster presentation.

The IgV Committee will be awarding a series of oral and poster presentation prizes to students and early postdoctoral researchers.  This is a member-only opportunity so if you need to renew please take this opportunity now, or if you would like to join ASI membership please click here.

Travel bursaries (covering airfare) will be awarded to the top abstracts submitted by Tasmanian ASI student members.
