On behalf of the organizing committee and of all attendees, thank you to the Canadian Society for Microbiologists for your generous support of the 2018 edition of the MIMM Graduate Student Research Day. On June 8th, we welcomed near 100 attendees at the McIntyre Medical Building at McGill University. While most were graduate students, faculty or undergraduate students from the department of Microbiology and Immunology, some individuals from the Biochemistry, Experimental Medicine and Physiology departments were also in attendance, as well as postdoctoral and faculty members from other local research institutes, including the McGill University Health Centre, the Lady Davis Institute, the Université de Montréal and the INRS-Armand Frappier.

In the morning, a keynote address was given by Dr. Liise-Anne Pirofski, M.D, Professor in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology and Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. As the Selma and Dr. Jacques Mitrani Chair in Biomedical Research, Dr. Pirofski’s research focuses on innate and acquired immunity to fungal and bacterial pathogens (including Cryptococcusand Pneumococcus), topics which rest at the intersection of research interests in our department.

The goal of this research day was to give graduate students the opportunity to present their research, interact with other attendees, and learn from fellow members of the local scientific community, and to have the chance to win award prizes based on the merit of their presentations. As such, the day featured a total of nine oral presentations and twenty-two poster presentations from both Master’s and PhD students of the Microbiology and Immunology department, on topics ranging from molecular virology to the immunology and microbiome studies. Thanks to the generosity of our academic and corporate sponsors, this year’s MIMM Graduate Student Research Day was a success.
