2015 Edition: Day of Immunology

Wednesday 29th April 2015 at Global


Dear IUIS and ALAI members,

The celebration of the day of Immunology continues in Mexico today. We invite IUIS and ALAI members to follow our program live by internet at:


1.     A symposium: “New talents of the Mexican Immunology”. In this symposium 21 early career professors who have recently returned to the country after a postdoctoral position abroad will present to the community their research lines and projects. The main goal is to promote the development of a strong young immunology community in Mexico to counteract the brain drain that our country suffers since long time. Mexico City

2.     We will launch a special issue on Immunology of the “Ciencia” (Science) magazine edited by the Mexican Academy of Sciences. This volume is dedicated to explain in simple words to the general non-scientist public, about the different aspects of Immunology and its influence in people life. Mexico City

3.      A poetry book “Versoplasia” will be presented by its author. This book creates poetry using the immune system and immunology concepts as inspiration source. Explore art and science junctions in a beautiful way. Mexico City

4.     A course on “Antibody Microarrays for proteins identification” has been organized at Zacatecas City at the north of Mexico to promote Immunology development outside the big cities.

Please help us to distribute this information among your colleagues.  Please find a copy of the program in the attached file
