STEM Outreach

About Us

Established in 2020, the Outreach Subcommittee is a trainee-led branch of the Yale Immunobiology Working Group on Diversity and Inclusion (IWGDI) committed to increasing the visibility of and accessibility to immunology.

We aim to:

  • Build an inclusive, centralized community for STEM outreach and equitable teaching & mentoring practices in Yale IBIO.
  • Establish initiatives that increase access to educational materials on basic immunology principles for students of all levels and the general public.
  • Strengthen relationships between the members of our department and the greater New Haven community.
  • Reach out to students from underrepresented communities interested in pursuing scientific career paths and support their retention in these fields.


Day of Immunology

Annual day-long event at the Yale School of Medicine to introduce local high school students to immunology and encourage students to pursue STEM. Includes workshops (e.g. Invasion Room, Parasite Pursuit, Cancer Immunology), career panel, lab tours, and a keynote address.
