Immunology symposium to honor Dr. Robert Good's legacy

Tampa, FL (June 1, 2006) -- Some of world's top scientists in immunology, transplantation, genetics, HIV, and stem cell research will gather June 9 to 12 for the "First Symposium of the Robert A. Good Immunology Society: Perspectives in Immunology 2006" at the Tradewinds Beach Resort, St. Pete Beach.

The symposium is jointly sponsored by USF Health, All Children's Hospital, and the RAG Immunology Society. The society is a nonprofit organization supporting education and science in honor of Robert A. Good, MD, PhD, the father of modern immunology who translated his tremendous knowledge of cellular immunity into the first successful bone marrow transplantation.

Dr. Good, who died in 2003, spent nearly 20 years at the University of South Florida and All Children's Hospital, where an endowed chair in pediatric immunology was created in his name. More than 300 physicians and scientists he trained or mentored during his career hold leadership positions at such esteemed institutions as Harvard Medical School, the National Institutes of Health, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and universities in Japan, Europe, Turkey, India, Korea and China.

"This inaugural symposium is an extension and continuation of the legacy of Dr. Robert Good, whose inspiration can still be felt today," said symposium director Noorbibi Day, PhD, professor of pediatrics at USF and colleague and widow of Dr. Good. "We are bringing together some of the world's greatest minds so that health professionals, scientists in related fields, students and the interested lay public can share the latest discoveries and trends in translational research relevant research leading from the patient's bedside to the laboratory bench and back to the patient."

"More than 40 world-renowned and illustrious scientists and physicians have been invited to speak and to share with us their experience and expertise in the area of immunology and infectious diseases," said Abdul Rao, MD, DPhil,
