Reproductive Immune Interaction Symposium

The broad topic of reproductive immunology was chosen, in part, because it is one that has not frequently or recently been addressed at the Joint Annual Meeting. The goal of the symposium was to highlight the important role of the immune system in reproductive function in ruminants, with a specific focus on function of the corpus luteum (CL), conceptus development, establishment of pregnancy, prevention of uterine infection including those of the neonate to viral exposure during pregnancy, and postparturient responses to infection and disease.  This symposium was held at the 2012 JAM.
