MIRC members gathered on June 15th at McMaster Innovation Park for a day-long symposium comprised of riveting speed talks, outstanding oral presentations, and excellent poster presentations, highlighting the cutting-edge research being conducted at MIRC. The day started off with an informative and engaging talk by Dr. Boris Hinz, from the University of Toronto, and ended with an equally enjoyed talk from Dr. Irah King, who travelled down from McGill University. Two travel awards, provided generously by the McMaster Immunology Research Center Faculty Scholarship Fund, were awarded to Dr. Matthew Woods (PDF, Kaushic lab) for his speed talk, and Joshua McGrath (PhD student, Stämpfli lab) for his poster presentation. We would like to thank the invited speakers for joining us and supporting the Perey Symposium. We would also like to extend a special thanks to the MIRC TAsc (Anisha Dubey, Karun Tandon, Jewel Imani, Ehab Ayaub and Lisa Newhook) for putting together a great symposium, and doing such a great job with all of the different events organized throughout the year.
