Internship Program

Established in 2008, the Institute for Immunology and Informatics has quickly developed a devoted following in the research community. To accommodate that interest, iCubed holds two annual meetings to discuss the latest developments, research and theories in the world of immunology and vaccines. Each October brings the Vaccine Renaissance Conference, also known as Vax Ren. In the spring, the Immunogenicity – Determinants and Correlates Conference, or IDC. Both meetings offer extensive presentations from a wide range of speakers tailored to the given audience. For more information on each conference, please visit the links below.
