Young Investigator Keynote Seminar Series

The ASIP Young Investigator Keynote Seminar Series is a virtual forum for trainee members of the ASIP to showcase their research through full-length seminars. This new seminar series enables ASIP trainee members to get to know each other’s research, complimenting their social and networking interactions. This seminar series also enables regular members of the ASIP to participate in the professional development of our trainee members, and learn about the research of their colleagues in the field of experimental pathobiology.

All Keynotes are at 12:00 PM EST
