The International Day of Immunology is dedicated to increasing global awareness of the importance of immunology in the fight against infection, autoimmunity, and cancer.  To mark the Day of Immunology 2021, EFIS and IUIS are jointly organizing a webinar on 29 April: Immunology in the time of COVID-19: achievements, challenges and opportunities. 

Featuring both presentations and a panel discussion, it will bring together global experts to take stock of where we are and what the future may hold.

Immunology has never had such a high public profile as right now in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the international immunology community’s impact in fighting diseases and improving global health is sometimes not understood. The hashtags for the 2021 Day of Immunology reflect this: #ThankYouImmunology   #DayofImmunology.
