Apply to Register

Undergraduate students who would like to attend the Autumn Immunology Conference must have their research advisor complete the registration process for them by September 22, 2017.  Investigators must verify your undergraduate status in order for the trainee registration fee to be waived. If you are planning to have an oral and/or poster presentation at the conference, your advisor must also complete submission of your abstract. An undergraduate has three choices for attending the meeting. He/she may choose not to present, to present only a poster or to present both a poster and at an oral workshop. By October 1, 2017, the PI will receive information on whether your student has been accepted.

Careers in Immunology Workshop - an opportunity for undergraduates to discuss science career opportunities with scientists and to meet representatives from different graduate schools, to discuss programs and application procedures.  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 question immunologists from large and small universities, medical schools, industry, and 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 discuss their programs and the types of research that are being conducted at their schools.
