2020 Immunology Interest Group Virtual Training Workshop

Welcome to the 2020 Immunology Virtual Training Workshop registration site.

The IIG Steering Committee is pleased to announce that the 2020 Immunology Interest Group Training Workshop will be held virtually on Wednesday, September 9th and Thursday, September 10th, 2020.

Registration for the 2020 IIG Virtual Training Workshop is NOW OPEN.

The IIG workshop has historically provided the opportunities for our trainees to present their studies and to receive valuable feedback. In order to maintain the tradition of showcasing the best of intramural NIH/FDA immunology during this challenging time, we are counting on your active participation to make this year’s workshop successful.

Here are some essential things to know about this year’s Workshop:

  • Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words. Keep in mind that the abstract that is submitted in your registration is the final version. Edits or changes in your abstract cannot be accepted after you have completed your registration. Use only Roman characters. Please proofread carefully and make sure you have checked with your PI (if needed) before you submit your abstract. Abstracts may be withdrawn BEFORE June 29th, 2020.
  • Registration will be closed on July 13th. In the past, the Workshop has been very popular and registration slots have filled very quickly. Although there is no physical space limitation this year, registration will still be closed the moment we reach capacity to hold the virtual workshop program, so please register as soon as possible. 
  • Official Acceptance will follow in a separate email from the IIG and will be on a strict first-come, first-served basis and favor those with science to share (i.e. with an abstract). Please, register EARLY. Only registered individuals will receive an electronic Abstract Book and an invitation to access the virtual workshop.

We will have a full and exciting agenda of cutting-edge immunology talks and poster sessions. Poster presenters may have the opportunity to give 3-5 minute "flash" talks.

The virtual workshop will not be recorded, so your active participation is highly encouraged. We hope, that with your aid and support, this will be the renaissance of Immunology training and mentorship at the NIH.
