Trainee Event

April 13, 2022 from 12-1 PT

The COVID-19 Immunology Consortium-BC (CIC-BC) Trainee Group provides a space for students and trainees who are interested in infectious disease immunology to learn and connect with peers from various sites across the province.
Each month we're hosting an event so you can keep a pulse of current research in the field from those who are on the ground: you! Each virtual event will feature student/trainee presentations with time for questions, discussion and networking.
