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.

Our poster presentations are as follows:
  • “Differential Expression of the Transcription Factor SPI1 (PU.1) in Dendritic Cell Subsets” - #P515 on May 14, 2:30-3:45pm
  • “Kinetic study of B cell-depletion with a novel mAb anti-mouse CD20, clone SA271G2” - #P2251 on May 16, 2:30-3:45pm
  • “MojoSort™ nanobead cell isolation using a commercial magnetic column provides high purity, yield, and preserved cell function” - #P2257 on May 16, 2:30-3:45pm
Visit us at our booth #804 to have further discussions with our scientists, find out more about our products, or just to say hello and grab some fun gifts on your way out.
In addition to our platinum sponsorship, BioLegend will support various other awards and events at AAI 2016:
Lefrançois-BioLegend Award
This award was established to honor the memory of AAI member Leo Lefrançois and this award is intended to advance the career of a trainee (student or postdoctoral fellow) who attends the AAI annual meeting and presents an outstanding abstract specifically in the area of mucosal immunology.
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.
We’re also sponsoring the President’s Service Appreciation Reception (May 15th), the Gala: Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum (May 16th), and our own Travel Awards.
And finally if you get some time to spare from all the intellectual stimulation, don’t miss out on an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful city of Seattle. Here are some fun facts about the city:
  1. Seattle is fondly known as the “The Emerald City” mostly due to the lush, green forests of Washington and more than 6000 acres of parks within the city limits.
  2. At 520 feet, the Space Needle was one of the tallest buildings in North America when it was built in 1962 for the Seattle World’s Fair. There is an observation deck at the top, and for those who aren’t afraid of heights, it is a great way to get a bird’s eye view of the city.
  3. Seattle is the birthplace of Starbucks, the world’s largest coffee chain. You can buy a unique mug (a collector’s item) at the original Starbucks in Pike Place Market, first opened in 1971.
  4. The Boeing Company was founded in the Seattle area by William Boeing, in 1916. The Boeing factory in Everett is the largest building in the world by volume (13.3 million cubic meters) according to the Guinness World Records list.
