Seminars & Events
The Department of Immunology, in partnership with individual and corporate sponsors, creates a vibrant learning experience through its regular seminar series and invited lectures for our graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, faculty and the broader community.
A key component of the UW Immunology experience is frequent seminars and events. From annual events such as the Department Retreat to regular research seminars, departmental activities enrich life for the UW Immunology community. See the Immunology Events Calendar for current listings of seminars, events and university dates of note.

Department Annual Retreat
The Department of Immunology holds an annual two-day Department Retreat on the second Monday and Tuesday in September, prior to the beginning of the academic year.
