M&I Scientific Conference

2022 Date TBA


The  Department of Microbiology & Immunology holds an annual Scientific Conference each January.  Graduate students, postdocs, Stanford University faculty and staff of the Stanford M&I program are all invited to attend.

This conference includes research presentations , a poster session, invited keynote speakers, breakout sessions, and social events.  Talks are given by members in the Microbiology & Immunology community and one to two members of each lab speak at the conference. 

New first year students are recommended to use this opportunity to get to know their classmates and fellow graduate students, as well as to learn more about faculty and lab research interests. This allows entering students to familiarize themselves with the wide range of biological systems offered in the program while remaining close to one area they may continue studying for thesis research.
