Event Details

We’ve been hearing a lot about the immune system lately, but do you really know what it is? Have you been wondering about your own immune system and how to take care of it?

Join ISB President Dr. Jim Heath and world-class immunologists online on November 10 from 6 - 7 p.m. PT to learn how your immune system works and what steps you can take to improve it.

Reimagine is a virtual event that is open to the community. It’s an opportunity to learn about ISB’s science and support our ongoing research efforts.

A generous group of donors has stepped up to match all donations received up to $20,000! If you donate before or during the event your gift will be doubled. You can also donate in advance, and receive a special event package.

Questions? Contact Audri Hubbard.


Our program speakers are Dr. Jim Heath in conversation with two world-class immunologists Dr. Mark Davis and Nobel Laureate Dr. David Baltimore. The program will also include special appearances by Drs. Jenn Hadlock, Sean Gibbons, Naeha Subramanian, Wei Wei, Samantha Piekos and more.
