Students and interns in the spotlight at the annual symposium of the Montreal Immunology Meeting

Students and interns from the Centre de recherche de l'Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont  (CRHMR) distinguished themselves during the 2020 edition of the annual meeting of Immunology Montreal (MIM) symposium, which was held virtually on November 16. In fact, two students and a postdoctoral fellow collected prizes at the event.

 

Each year, the MIM organizes, among other things, a symposium on a theme of immunology. This year the symposium was held virtually and featured immunology in Montreal.
