Society for Leukocyte Biology 55th Annual Meeting
Leukocytes on the Wave for Translating Medicine

Big Science at a Small Meeting

SLB is excited to announce plans for the 2022 in-person meeting.  Mark your calendar for October 26 - 29, 2022 and plan to join SLB on the Big Island of Hawai'i at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. SLB meetings offer quality science along with presentation and networking opportunities in a small meeting setting. Registration is now open. See the full Call for Abstract Brochure. SLB meetings are historically excellent venues to present your work and network.  With an average of over 20 countries participating each year, 125+ posters annually, and 75+ oral presentations, the SLB annual meeting truly represents all the opportunities of a big meeting with the benefits of a small community.

You can still register for workshops, SIGs and the SCHOOL program! contact us

If the situation dictates an in-person meeting is not feasible, the event will convert to a virtual format and take place over the same dates. SLB reserves the right to adjust the program as needed.
