The third ASI Advanced Immunology School will be held in 2023 at Nunyara Conference Centre in Adelaide, SA. 

The theme for the 2023 AIS will be ‘Immune Diversity’.

The ASI-AIS aims to provide training in advanced and cutting edge basic and clinical immunological research for early career researchers with a sound background knowledge in the principles of immunology in a friendly scientific environment.  

The 3.5-day live-in event will consist of presentations by expert scientists and round-table discussions to give in-depth understanding of recent advances and emerging themes in immunology, workshops on immunological technologies and sessions to enhance professional skills including scientific writing. Participants will also have the opportunity to present their own research.

The interactive nature of the ASI-AIS aims to provide a platform for communication between the participants and teaching faculty and for establishing new collaborations and professional networks.
