In May, The Pompano lab sent a delegation to the American Association of Immunologist's annual conference, Immunology 2017, in Washington DC. It was great to take in some cutting-edge immunology research! We presented three posters:
Maura Belanger: “Validation of murine lymph node slices as a viable and functional experimental platform.” Co-authors included Ashley, Andrew, and Ben (undergraduate). **Congratulations to Maura, who won a Student Travel Award for her poster!
Ashley Ross: “Diffusional analysis of cytokines in lymph node tissue on a microfluidic chip.”
Kristen Richey (undergraduate): "Bright blue fluorescent nanoparticles for live cell imaging by fluorescence microscopy." This was a collaboration with Meng Zhuang and Cassandra Fraser.
Look for the papers on these topics later this summer!
