BioLegend at IMMUNOLOGY 2016™
|IMMUNOLOGY 2016™ is just around the corner. For those who are not familiar with this event, IMMUNOLOGY 2016™ is the biggest all-immunology conference of the year, led by AAI (The American Association of Immunologists), that brings together thousands of scientists, researchers and clinicians from all around the world. This year’s AAI Annual Meeting is being hosted in Seattle, Washington, from May 13-17. BioLegend is a proud platinum sponsor of this conference as it has been for the past several years.|
|We will be presenting several posters and hosting exhibitor workshops at this conference. Check out our “Time to GoInVivo™” workshop where our expert Miguel Tam will talk about BioLegend’s newest product line called GoInVivo™. These are functionally-validated bulk purified antibodies that are targeted for immune checkpoints and can be used for in vivo mouse injections or human ex vivo studies. Attendees of this workshop will also have the chance of winning a $100 Amazon gift card from a lucky drawing.|

|AAI-BioLegend Herzenberg Award
This award was established to honor the memory of AAI member Leonard A. Herzenberg, and this award recognizes an investigator who has made outstanding contributions to the field of immunology in the area of B cell biology.
