 Overview

In recent years there has been an increased level of collaboration between clinical immunology research and clinical immunologists, perhaps best demonstrated in the field of primary immunodeficiency. We aim to grow these networks between clinical immunology researchers and practicing clinicians by leveraging our existing networks and collaborations of ASI members to promote clinical immunology research of ASI members amongst our clinical colleagues at meetings and stimulate collaboration between disciplines of clinical research.

Vision for Clinical Immunology SIG

The purpose of the Clinical Immunology SIG is to provide an avenue for clinical immunology researchers with a drive to bring their research ideas into the clinic, and to promote current disease-relevant immunology research of ASI members amongst clinical societies. The group aims to facilitate the sharing of resources, promote networking opportunities between clinical immunology-focused ASI members and lift the profile of clinical immunology within clinical societies to accelerate translation of research findings by better engaging clinical community in cutting edge immunology research.

Specific goals of the Clinical Immunology SIG include:

• Establish a series of satellite meetings at national clinical societies that showcase clinical immunology research in Australia
• Promote immunology research of ASI members in the clinical community
• Facilitate clinical immunology research among ASI members, sharing of resources and networks by connecting researchers with overlapping interests.
• Cross-communication between ASI and clinical societies; active engagement of clinical societies in immunology research via satellite meetings and inclusion.
• Promote sharing of resources and networking opportunities for ASI members engaged in clinical research
•  Connect immunologists with common and overlapping research interests and expertise
•  Promote clinical immunology research within ASI
• Facilitate collaboration and translation of research findings by better engaging clinical community in immunology research

Clinical Immunology SIG for ASI members

  • Provide a resource for members with the intention of establishing networks and collaborations with clinical immunology researchers and clinicians.
  •  Strengthen collaborative efforts between researchers in clinical immunology and basic immunology; may also offer a platform for those who would like to translate their research findings into clinical practice
  •  Raise profile of ASI members and research among clinical colleagues and societies via active engagement of clinical societies.
