The IUIS is an umbrella organization for many of the regional and national societies of immunology throughout the world. As articulated in its Constitution, the objectives of IUIS are:

  • to encourage within each scientifically independent territory co-operation between the Societies that represent the interests of immunology
  • to contribute to the advancement of immunology in all its aspects.

ASI is strongly represented within the IUIS.  Assoc. Prof. Roslyn Kemp, is the current Secretary-General of IUIS and Prof. J.

Immunopaedia Ambassadors are being sought to help promote Immunopaedia and to contribute content for courses.  As there are currently no Ambassadors from Australasia, ASI Members are encouraged to contribute to IUIS by either submitting original pieces or by editing existing material.
