Day of Immunology

The International Day of Immunology is celebrated worldwide every April. The event aims to strengthen public awareness of the importance of the immune system to each person’s health and well being.
Melbourne is a hub for world renowned immunology research. Please join us at the following events to celebrate International Day of Immunology in Victoria.

Specially designed to celebrate this year’s Day of Immunology, this is the first interactive book on the topic to be released on the web.
Throughout the interactive story, everybody can enjoy learning how the immune system protects the body every day against thousands of germs.
Based upon the book “Your Amazing Immune System-How it protects your body”, this interactive version for all audiences presents animations, quizzes, and –very soon- an interactive game to test your knowledge and challenge it against other players!
From individuals to classroom pupils, this interactive tool can be used by all, and we hope you will help to spread it outside the immunological community!
A modern tool produced by EFIS in collaboration with international immunologists and web specialists.
This interactive book is the fruit of collaboration between international immunologists and communication and web specialists. The idea was to develop a fun tool for all audiences, with modern technology, and we hope you will all enjoy it!
Have a great Day of Immunology 2012!

Day of Immunology 2012 Competition
We invite immunologists worldwide (individual scientists and institutes) to submit their ideas for PR initiatives in combination with the DoI 2012. The main goal of the activities should be to effectively bring “hot topics” in immunology to the public (layperson, media, patient, etc.). The ideal initiative should make immunological expertise more accessible for the general public.
The annual Day of Immunology was created to bring awareness of immunology to a large public. Your action can make the difference!
