Symposium Highlights Campus Research in Infection Biology


URBANA - From NIH training grants to research that impacts human medicine, public health and veterinary science, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign hosts a rich array of biomedical research activity.

On Friday, April 29, a day-long Infection Biology Symposium will showcase research on this campus and the campus training programs that support it. Speakers from the University of Chicago and from the Urbana campus will give overviews of study on pathogens including Salmonella, Pseudomonas, and West Nile virus. Program directors will provide insight into infection biology training opportunities and highlight the integrative efforts in infection biology research at Illinois.

The symposium is free, but advance registration is requested. It will be held in the Large Animal Clinic Auditorium on the Vet Med campus. See vetmed.illinois.edu/ope/infecbio.
