Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology

The aim of the Society is to encourage and support the discipline of immunology in the Australasian region. It is a broadly based Society, embracing clinical and experimental, cellular and molecular immunology in humans and animals. The Society provides a network for the exchange of information and for collaboration within Australia, New Zealand and overseas. ASI members have been prominent in advancing biological and medical research worldwide. We seek to encourage the study of immunology in Australia and New Zealand and are active in introducing young scientists to the discipline.

Society Profile

50th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology

29th November – 2nd December, 2022 | Melbourne, Australia

ASI 2022 Melbourne will bring together renowned Immunologists to showcase the best immunology research from Australia, New Zealand and around the world.

This 50th annual meeting will be a significant milestone in the history of the society. This will be the first time since 2019 that the society will be meeting altogether in-person. In addition, it will be 25 years since Peter Doherty was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. We have much to celebrate!

We have assembled an exciting program covering all aspects of immunology research, with a fantastic line up of international and national invited speakers. Themes include COVID-19, innate immunity, tumour immunology, systems immunology, autoimmunity and many more. There will also be plenty of opportunities for oral and poster presentations selected from abstracts.

The MCEC is located in Melbourne’s dynamic Southbank Precinct. Surrounded by world-class restaurants, shopping, culture and other attractions, as well being only a stone’s throw to Melbourne’s CBD, Docklands precinct and bayside areas, there will be plenty to keep you all busy during, before and after the conference.

We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne!

Immunology & Cell Biology

Immunology & Cell Biology focuses on the general functioning of the immune system in its broadest sense, with a particular emphasis on its cell biology.

Areas that are covered include but are not limited to:

  • Cellular immunology
  • Innate and adaptive immunity
  • Immune responses to pathogens
  • Tumour immunology
  • Immunopathology
  • Immunotherapy
  • Immunogenetics
  • Immunological studies in humans and model organisms (including mouse, rat, Drosophila etc)


Clinical & Translational Immunology

Clinical & Translational Immunology is an open access, fully peer-reviewed journal devoted to publishing cutting-edge advances in biomedical research for scientists and physicians. Brought to you by the editorial team of Immunology & Cell Biology, CTI covers fields including cancer biology, cardiovascular research, gene therapy, immunology, vaccine development and disease pathogenesis and therapy at the earliest phases of investigation.

Clinical & Translational Immunology seeks to cover basic, translational and clinical studies in all aspects of human immunology, including experimental models specific to human diseases.

Topics of particular interest within the journal’s scope include, but are not limited to, those listed below:

  • cutting edge approaches including in vivo models of human disease that shed light on the mechanisms of immunity
  • clinical studies with relevance to autoimmunity transplantation and tumor immunotherapy
  • cutting edge immunoassays for monitoring clinical trials/patient responses
  • infection and immunity – correlates of protection
  • immunotherapies in relation to autoimmunity, primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, complement disorders and allergies
  • pathogenesis and correlates of protection for autoimmune and endocrine disorders, infectious disease, malignancy and transplantation
