August 28-September 2, 2022
The conference brings together graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, scientists, physicians, and physician-scientists who have an interest in neuroimmunology. It aims to inspire and support junior investigators, trainees, women, and investigators from underrepresented minorities to pursue neuroimmunology research. The conference provides the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the ﬁeld, participate in workshops and career panels for junior investigators, and to network with peers, potential collaborators, and potential mentors in neuroimmunology.

Conference sessions will present the latest research and foster discussion on:
- The Meninges in Immunosurveillance and Disease
- Microglia in Health and Disease
- Aging and Neuroinﬂammation
- Innate Immune Sensing in Neuroinﬂammation
- Update on Immunomodulatory Approaches to Nervous System Disease
- Astrocytes in the Innate Immune Response
- The Role of CD8 T Cells in Neurological Disease
- Extracellular Vesicles in Neuroinﬂammation
- Encephalitogenic and Regulatory CD4 T Cells
- Regulatory Myeloid Cells
The conference covers 10 sessions and 25-50 abstract presentations. Two "Meet the Expert" Sessions are designed for trainees and junior faculty to meet thought leaders in the ﬁeld and receive career and scientiﬁc advice. A panel of experts will present and discuss diﬀerent career trajectories in neuroimmunology and the steps necessary to attain professional goals. The session includes representatives from academia, the pharmaceutical industry, journals, and the NIH.
The program also features two Career Development Workshops: one on the topic of how to forge collaborations with clinicians and translate research ﬁndings to human studies. The other addresses how to organize and manage a research laboratory as a junior faculty member.
