CNND Symposium

November 20, 2019
8:30 am - 3:00 pm
Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC) (Medical Campus)

The Center for Neuroimmunology & Neuroinfectious Diseases hosts an annual symposium featuring topics on neuroimmunology, neuroinfectious diseases and neuroimaging.

This year, the CNND will invite members of the newly established Mississippi Atchfalaya River Basin (MARB) Neuroimmunology Society, comprised of academic researchers with interest in neuro-immune science that hail from geographic locations that all feed into the MARB. The MARB includes 23 states in which are located >20 top medical institutions. Because we hope to attract a large group of registrants, our speakers will address a variety of neuroimmunological topics of interest to the community.
