Day of Immunology – Call to Action 2016!

July 18, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

The annual Day of Immunology is just around the corner on April 29, 2016! The day is dedicated to increasing global awareness of the importance of immunology in the fight against infection, autoimmunity and cancer. The IUIS and EFIS are working together to encourage national societies to participate in the Day of Immunology and to promote the benefits of immunology research.

We strongly encourage your immunological society and federation to participate in the day. It will be an asset to publicizing your society and the importance of immunology to global heath. We are happy to assist you with advise (please feel free call) and pedagogic material that you can freely use to create a winning campaign that will reach journalists, school teachers, politicians and decision makers and all people you know.

Design your campaign the way you like using any media you wish – posters, film, video, social media, email or regular mail. Ask all your members to give interviews, lectures, join classroom discussions, meet teachers and talk to friends, family and neighbors about their amazing immune system!

Reserve April 29 as the day to discuss immunology with everyone you know. Your participation is shaping an international community of immunologists dedicated to improving health for people around the world.

Applying for a prize is simple – just follow the steps below. We look forward to celebrating the awards with you at the ICI Melbourne, 21-24 August 2016.

President, IUIS President, EFIS
