Innate Immunity on Campus

The Program in Innate Immunity is actively involved in training graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and young physician scientists. Predoctoral training is supported by two NIH funded T32 training grants; Innate Immunity Training Program (IITP) and Autoimmunity and Autoinflammation Traning Grant (AATG) 

Training activities in the IITP include a student organized and directed Innate Immunity Journal Club, where some of the recent literature in the field is presented and dissected. In addition, the Program organizes a monthly research-in-progress meeting known as the Innate Immunity Data Club, where trainees regularly present their ongoing experimental data.  

The Program also organizes frequent Innate Immunity Symposiums on campus, as well as International Toll Conferences (2004, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2015) eg. www.toll2015.org

Training activities in the AATG include a student organized and directed Autoimmunity and Autoinflammation Journal Club, where some of the recent literature in the field is presented and dissected. In addition, the AATG organizes a monthly research-in-progress meeting known as the Autoimmunity Focus Group, where trainees regularly present their ongoing experimental data.
