The BSI West of Scotland Immunology Group (WSIG) showcase is an opportunity to meet with colleagues and hear about some fantastic immunology! The showcase includes the 8th Delphine Parrott memorial talk that celebrates Delphine Parrott, a dedicated immunology researcher and teacher who was the first woman to be a professor at the University of Glasgow. It will take place at the Mazumdar-Shaw Advanced Research Centre, University of Glasgow.
We are delighted to welcome two amazing speakers:

Dr Niwa Ali, Sir Henry Dale Fellow at King's College London. Dr Ali's lab studies how immune cells interact with stem cells to maintain tissue function. Dr Ali will discuss 'Emerging functions of regulatory T cells in neonatal tissue homeostasis and cancer'. 
Professor Doreen Cantrell, University of Dundee will present this year’s Delphine Parrott Memorial Lecture 'Protein degradation pathways shape CD8 T lymphocyte function'. Professor Cantrell is a world-expert in the development and activation of T cells. She uses cutting-edge biochemical techniques to understand immunology and has made a huge contribution to our understanding of the regulation of T cells.
We are excited to host a poster session with refreshments at the showcase, giving everyone the opportunity to present their recent research. All attendees are encouraged to bring a poster and we will have prizes for the top two! Poster sessions will run from 15:00–16:00 and 17:00–18:00 BST with refreshments.

Please indicate on the registration form if you plan to bring a poster and whether it is portrait or landscape.
