Aaron Lucander, BS, presented his poster titled “Assessing the Eplet Specificities of HLA Class I-Specific Antibodies in the Rejected Renal Allograft” at the UAB Heersink School of Medicine Medical Student Research Day on September 13, 2022.
Students from Lund and Randall labs, accompanied by other students from UAB, attended 2022 AAI Advanced Course in Immunology in Boston. Among the 300 students who attended the course, UAB had the most students at 14, and 6 out of which came from the labs.
“Overall I enjoyed the course and was really glad to have gotten the chance to have gone,” said Hannah Meshell Canter. “I learned a lot about not only my field but in others as well. At the same time, learning about how certain the results came about was interesting. One of the most important things I learned were the different methods and mice that can be used. It was a great course, I got to meet so many people and have a chance to talk to the professors. It’s a course I would recommend to any grad student who wishes to gain a better understanding of immunology. 10/10 I would go again!”
“The conference gave a lot of useful information,” said Xinran Wang. “In resident memory B cell part, they did reference our labs paper and in B cell autoimmune tolerance they referenced our lupus paper. The course is strong and intense we probably need to rewatch the video again to memorize more information.”
Graduate student and researchers from Drs Lund and Randall’s lab participated in the Southeastern Immunology Symposium at Duke University from June 11-12, 2022.
