Day of Immunology


Day of Immunology

Celebrate your amazing immune system on the 29 April by attending events around Australia and New Zealand.

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 ASI, Day of Immunology has been celebrated in Australia since 2009.

Day of Immunology 2023

ASI is hosting numerous events around Australia in 2023 to celebrate the International Day of Immunology. The theme this year is “Immunology talks to public health”, which is an exciting opportunity to highlight the broad and deep impact that immunology has on our society.

The cornerstone events are our public lectures happening in Melbourne, Perth, Queensland and Sydney. Melbourne will treat people with insights into skin immunity from our brilliant and entertaining hosts. Over in Western Australia, people of all ages will be entertained with educational and immunological activities at the Telethon Kids Institute. Queensland will host a star-studded public talk on childhood inflammation and the microbiome at QIMR Berghofer.

We will also be giving tours throughout our research facilities, hosting school workshops and getting the word out about immunology in the media in Australia and New Zealand.
