On behalf of the symposium organizing committee, I would like to invite you to participate in the 15th Biomedical and Comparative Immunology Symposium in Miami, at FIU. This annual symposium will address recent advances in our understanding of diverse biological systems and phenomena. It will focus on cellular and molecular mechanisms of fundamental processes that govern organismal development, reproduction, cellular differentiation, disease, growth and survival. We anticipate that biologists and biomedical scientists working with a variety of vertebrate (including human and other mammals) and invertebrate organisms will find the plenary sessions and other scientific presentations informative and stimulating. Please share this invitation with your colleagues, post-doctoral fellows and students.

We look forward to welcoming you to South Florida where we hope you will also enjoy the weather and the wealth of cultural opportunities.
