Oestreich lab members chair a session and receive awards at the annual OSU Microbial Infection and Immunity Department Retreat

The first MI&I virtual (and second annual) department retreat was highly successful, with fantastic presentations regarding in-progress work from both principal investigators and a host of trainees. The Oestreich lab was well-represented, with a session chaired by post-doctoral scholar Dr. Srijana Pokhrel, and presentations by graduate students Jasmine Tuazon, Devin Jones, and Kaitlin Read (who all received prizes for outstanding presentations, as selected by department-wide votes). Congratulations to all!
