 June 30-July 2, 1995

 Keynote speaker:  Dr. Paul M. Allen from Washington University in St.Louis.
 Title: Biological Consequences of Partial T Cell Activation

 Our keynote speaker is the only faculty representative at the
 Western Conference in Immunology.  Dr. Allen, as have our
 speakers in the past, has agreed to stay for the duration of the
 conference weekend to lend pointers and allow us the chance to talk
 to him at length.

 This conference is a great opportunity to meet many of your fellow
 peers in an informal, low-pressure setting and creates a forum, not only
 for the discussion of current research and techniques, but also for
 another chance to improve your skills at presentations through talks
 and posters.
