CIC Seminar Series

The CIC Seminar Series is a cornerstone and vital conduit of the UVA Immunology community. It is dedicated to enhancing education, knowledge and research on the immune system, by inviting local, national and international experts and leaders in the field to visit and speak at UVA. It gives faculty, research associates and students the opportunity to meet and network, and it provides a forum to present and discuss cutting-edge discoveries in immunology. The CIC Seminar Series also cultivates innovative research opportunities by developing and extending interaction and collaboration, both within and beyond UVA. So, whether you are passionate for biochemistry, biomedical engineering, cell or systems biology, genetics, microbiology, pharmacology, or something in between, the CIC Seminar Series has something for everyone!

The seminars are from 3:00p to 4:00p and will be held either in-person Pinn Hall, room 1017, or virtually on Zoom.

We look forward to seeing you there!
