The Lorne Infection and Immunity Conference brings together scientists, students, health care and industry from multiple disciplines with a shared interest in infection and immunity research.
Registrations are open and abstracts are being accepted for the 2019 Lorne Infection and Immunity Conference.
ECR awards, subsidised student registrations, an amazing speaker list and new NHMRC grant deadlines are all good reasons to be part of this I&I tradition.
See below for links to register and for more information.
Registration and abstract submissions are now open: https://members.asnevents.com.au/event/1602
