The Sheridan Lab hosts a monthly journal club focused on current topics in immunology. All members of the Stony Brook University community interested in immunology may participate by presenting recent publications from top-tier immunology journals for discussion. The focus of the papers may be on any aspect of immune responses to pathogens or commensals, cancer, or in autoimmunity and inflammatory diseases. Please contact Dr. Brian Sheridan for inclusion on an email list for notifications. Immuno Club is typically held at 9:30am on the last Tuesday of every month in the CID 2nd floor conference room.
