The Dear Colleagues and Friends from Japan,
It is with great concern that we follow the catastrophic situation that has struck Japan.
We just received your ICI 2010 Wrap-up Report of the 14th International Congress of Immunology in Kobe. This city, which suffered a catastrophic earthquake in 1995, has fully recovered and impressed us enormously with its vibrancy and vitality. Now, we witness another natural disaster in Japan. Be assured that our thoughts are with you at these difficult times and that we as immunologists from all over the world, offer our support and deepest sympathy.
