There is an increasing appreciation for the unique properties of immunity generated at mucosal sites. The goal of the MIIG is to provide a forum for scientific discussion and sharing of reagents and models in the field of mucosal immunology. The scope will be broad and will include immunology of the nasopharyngeal, gastrointestinal, respiratory, genitourinary, oral, and ocular mucosal tissues, as well as basic, clinical, and translational topics.
The MIIG will organize a symposium each year, and host lab presentations and/or journal article reviews on the NIH campus on a monthly basis.
Regular meetings are currently scheduled on the last Friday of the month, from 12-1pm in the Vaccine Research Center (Building 40) room 1201, starting in November, 2007.
NOTE: WE WILL NOT HAVE A MEETING DECEMBER 28, 2007.
