The Office of Research Education is continuing its partnership with the Tattered Cover Book Store to provide talks on the basic science featured in current books. The next event, at 6 p.m Thursday, January 26, will feature Aimee Bernard, PhD, assistant professor of immunology and microbiology, and Gabriella Albert and Marina Good, two PhD students in the Office of Research Education’s Immunology Program. Aimee, Gabi, and Marina will lead a session, “Your Shot at Protection: How Vaccines Train the Immune System to Fight Disease.” They will present a primer on the science and take questions from the audience. This outreach program features our exceptional students and faculty and makes stronger connections with the community we serve. Many thanks to the Tattered Cover for hosting the event at their store at 2526 E. Colfax Ave., Denver. Also, thanks to the Office of Research Education for creating this collaboration with one of Denver’s leading cultural institutions.
