Welcome Undergraduates!

AIC provides an unparalleled opportunity for undergraduate students who are interested in immunology to attend and participate in a scientific meeting. This is an excellent chance to meet and talk with immunologists at all career levels.

Apply to Register

Undergraduate students who would like to attend the Autumn Immunology Conference must complete the registration process by September 21, 2018. Undergraduate students that are conducting research and submit an abstract by the deadline will have their registration fee waived. A statement supporting undergraduate student meeting attendance from the student's research advisor will be requested by AIC and required for registration waiver. Undergraduates that submit abstracts have two choices for presentation: to present only a poster or to present a poster as well as an oral presentation during the afternoon workshop. By October 1, 2018, the PI and undergraduate will be notified regarding the status of their registration and fee waiver. A $50 registration fee will be required for undergraduate students who do not to submit an abstract. The reduced registration fee will cover all regular conference activities as well as the undergraduate program activities described below. Undergraduate students that fail to meet the September 21, 2018 deadline for registration will be required to pay the full registration fee for trainees.

Careers in Immunology Workshop - an opportunity for undergraduates to learn about and discuss career opportunities with scientists, and to discuss programs and application procedures with representatives from different graduate schools.  The Careers in Immunology Workshop is sponsored by the American Association of Immunologists (AAI).

This workshop is for undergraduate students and has two components:

  1. Career panel. You will have an opportunity to hear from and question immunologists from large and small universities, medical schools, industry, as well as current immunology graduate students on topics of interest to you.  This is an open forum where lunch is served.
  2. Visits with Graduate Schools. You will have an opportunity to meet representatives from leading research universities and medical schools and discuss their programs and the types of research that are being conducted at their schools.
