ASI’s Online Fireside Chats 

The Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology, ASI, have launched their ‘Ask an Immunologist’ public outreach initiative. This takes the form of public queries sent in by email as well as live, Q&A online sessions with an expert, during which the public can ask their burning question about the immune system. Questions are typed into the Q&A box in Zoom, moderated by our Chair, and answered by our Speaker live during the session.

Our ASI Online Fireside Chats are provided free of charge to the general non-scientific public.

This is our proactive approach to making science accessible to the broader community.

Who would benefit most from these sessions?

These are dynamic and engaging sessions that are perfectly suited to the family and friends of all Immunologists and the non-scientific public.
