What is the ASI Advanced Immunology School?

Last year, ASI held the inaugural Advanced Immunology School in July 2019 at Iluka Retreat, Rawson, Victoria. 

The ASI-AIS is a 3-day program that aims to provide training in advanced and cutting edge basic and clinical immunological research by expert scientists from around Australia. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own research.
