The 2016 Molecular Basis of Infectious Diseases (MBID) Retreat on March 10th was a great success.  We had a record number of individuals register for the event (197), and the bad weather didn’t keep many away.   We look forward to another great opportunity to explore what is going on in the field of infectious disease research in Texas next year.  Be sure to join us in 2017!
