Snyder Institute Research Day

Join us on Wednesday, October 11, 2023, for our annual Research Day.

After several years of cancelled and virtual events, we are pleased to hold the Snyder Institute’s 2023 in-person Research Day on Wednesday, October 11.

Our Research Day 2023 will highlight the high impact research being conducted by some of our most recently recruited members. Here is snapshot of some of the talks and presentations:

  • Johnathan Canton: Apolipoprotein control of antigen cross presentation by conventional dendritic cells
  • Antoine Dufour: Keep up with the TEMPO in the omics area
  • Nargis Khan: Maladaptive innate immune training links to chronic inflammation in colitis
  • Katharina Lahl: Immune responses to rotavirus infection at the maternal-neonatal interface
  • Andrew Leidal: Secretory autophagy in inflammatory lung conditions
  • Braedon McDonald: Immunotherapy through microbiota editing: harnessing microbiota-immune interactions to combat infections in the ICU
  • Bas Surewaard: Looking at the wild side of infectious disease research 
  • Christina Thornton: The role of the lung microbiome in suppurative disease

This not-to-be-missed day of insights and revelations about the science and medicine we study and practice will be an excellent opportunity for Snyder members to connect with colleagues, trainees and staff. Attendees are invited to join us for a reception in the HRIC Atrium at the close of the talks.

Registration is required. Lunch and reception will be provided to all registered attendees. Please register soon, and no later than Wednesday, October 4, 2023.

I look forward to seeing you at Snyder’s Research Day on October 11!
