Organiser Description:

Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology - Day of Immunology

The purpose of the Day of Immunology is to strengthen public awareness of immunology as a basis for individual health and well-being.
Established in 2005 by the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS), the success of Day of Immunology led to it being celebrated worldwide since 2007. Under the auspices of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI) and other generous sponsors, Day of Immunology has been celebrated in Victoria since 2009.
