Sociedade Portuguesa de Imunologia


Margarida Saraiva

SPI is an active Immunology Society founded in 1973 by a small group of immunologists who felt the need to create a forum, dedicated to education, interaction and state of the art discussion in basic and clinical immunology. Membership has increased over the years to more than 250 members and we have honoured several prominent immunologists, both from Portugal and overseas with honorary membership.

Our members work in research institutes, universities and in clinical care encompassing the fields of tolerance, cancer immunology, allergy, vaccination, transplantation and infections. Basic investigation with clinical models often parallels clinical research in the fields of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis and autoimmunity, the latter focusing on multiple sclerosis, diabetes, systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis.
