The Center for Cancer Research at the National Cancer Institute is hosting a two-day national symposium entitled "Frontiers in Basic Immunology: 2012." The program includes recent advances in the field and should be an exciting forum for discussion and debate on the current understanding of basic immunological mechanisms.

Sessions will include:

  • Lymphocyte biology and signaling
  • Adaptive and innate immune responses
  • Immunity and disease

Registration is free, but seating is limited so be sure to register early! The deadline for abstract submission is Agust 17, 2012. Online registration and instructions for abstract submission can be found at:

For conference-related questions, please contact Karen Kochersberger at 301-228-4027.
