Spit Camp

Salivary Analyte Basics and Lab Training
Thu, 01/27/2022 - 8:00am to Fri, 01/28/2022 - 5:00pm

Faculty, post-doctoral scholars, fellows, and graduate students are invited to join us for Spit Camp 1, a two-day workshop program designed to teach both basic and advanced strategies for incorporating saliva into your research and data analysis. Participants gain practical knowledge and experience in salivary bioscience, while building relationships and collaborations, sharing ideas, and getting valuable feedback. Lectures and discussions are led by Assistant Professor Jenna Riis, and laboratory activities are led by the Institute for Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research (IISBR) lab team.

Attendees will be required to wear face masks when indoors and face shields while collecting saliva samples in a group setting as per UCI guidelines. Attendees must also show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result from within 48-hours of the camp (PCR or Antigen; this information will not be stored). Additional COVID-19 precautions may be instituted in accordance with local and university guidelines at the time of the camp.
