Organized by: FluOMICs Consortium

Co-sponsored by Program Project for the study of Innate Immune Responses and Vaccines Against Tumor-Associated Herpesviruses (P01CA177322 NIH/NCI; Ren Sun (PI))


Elucidating the molecular mechanisms that govern host-pathogen interactions is a subject of intense research in the field of infectious disease. National and local thought leaders will discuss current gaps in our understanding of how pathogens manage to evade host immune surveillance and establish acute and chronic infection states.

The 5th Annual Systems Biology and Host-Pathogen Interactions Symposium is FREE to attend, but registration is required for all attendees. A limited number of travel grants will be awarded.


Poster Session

We encourage abstract submission for posters. Four authors will be selected to speak about their work at the symposium. Abstracts must include:

  1. Poster title (up to 150 characters including spaces).

  2. Author's full name and affiliation.

  3. Text only abstract (limit of 250 words).

Click here to submit your abstract. Please submit poster abstracts by January 19, 2019.
