Wednesday 29th April 2020

The International Day of Immunology is just around the corner on April 29, 2020! 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 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.
