Dear colleague,

It's my pleasure to kindly remind you that the topic of the International Day of Immunology, to be celebrated saturday 29th April, will be this year IgE and Allergy (50th anniversary of IgE discovery). As you know and in spite of its immeasurable contribution to the development of Medicine and Biology (17 Nobel Prizes), Immunology remains a little-known or unknown science, often assimilated to the problems related to AIDS. It is precisely to promote this young discipline and to discover its fields of activity and its decisive contribution to the development of medical and scientific research that the International Immunology Day was celebrated since 2005 every April 29th.


African Immunology Societies are kindly invited to organize (if not possible this year, plan to next year) this celebration with conferences, scientific presentations, cultural and social programs.. targeting the general public, especially young people.


best regards

Hatem Masmoudi


PS : You can find in the IUIS website the link to the video "get inside your immune system through amazing pictures"part 1 and 2 that can be very helpful to explain to children (and adults too) what is the immune system, how it functions.. You can also find the same video with a soundtrack (we added) in french in the website of the Tunisian Society of Immunology as well as a documentary film (25 mn) of our first celebration of the Immunology Day (April 28-29 2013).. and in attached files, the flyers with the program of this year and the 2013 celebrations.
