Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology

The aim of the Society is to encourage and support the discipline of immunology in the Australasian region. It is a broadly based Society, embracing clinical and experimental, cellular and molecular immunology in humans and animals. The Society provides a network for the exchange of information and for collaboration within Australia, New Zealand and overseas. ASI members have been prominent in advancing biological and medical research worldwide. We seek to encourage the study of immunology in Australia and New Zealand and are active in introducing young scientists to the discipline.

Society Profile

51st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology

Auckland, New Zealand from 4 – 8 December 2023

The ASI 2023 Organizing Committee warmly welcomes you to join us at the 51st Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology (ASI).

The ASI is an inclusive society whose mission is to advance the science and education of Immunology in the Australasian region.  Our Annual Scientific Meeting brings together a wide range of immunologists incorporating disciplines in clinical and experimental, cellular and molecular Immunology, in both humans and animals.

The 51st Annual Scientific Meeting of the ASI will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 4 – 8 December 2023 at the Sir Owen G Glenn Building, The University of Auckland.  During this time delegates will be offered a diverse and balanced programme that is sure to include topics of interest for everyone.  We have invited a stimulating line-up of local and international experts who are all very excited to present their cutting-edge work and participate in our sensational social programme.

Auckland (Tāmaki Makaurau) is a vibrant multicultural city that extends from the protective harbour of the East Coast with its many beautiful islands to the rugged Surf Beaches of the West Coast.  Whether you are into sightseeing and bushwalking, shopping, fine food, the nightlife or the vineyards, Auckland has plenty of pre and post conference options on offer.

We look forward to seeing you in Auckland!

Immunology & Cell Biology

Immunology & Cell Biology focuses on the general functioning of the immune system in its broadest sense, with a particular emphasis on its cell biology.

Areas that are covered include but are not limited to:

  • Cellular immunology
  • Innate and adaptive immunity
  • Immune responses to pathogens
  • Tumour immunology
  • Immunopathology
  • Immunotherapy
  • Immunogenetics
  • Immunological studies in humans and model organisms (including mouse, rat, Drosophila etc)


Clinical & Translational Immunology

Clinical & Translational Immunology is an open access, fully peer-reviewed journal devoted to publishing cutting-edge advances in biomedical research for scientists and physicians. Brought to you by the editorial team of Immunology & Cell Biology, CTI covers fields including cancer biology, cardiovascular research, gene therapy, immunology, vaccine development and disease pathogenesis and therapy at the earliest phases of investigation.

Clinical & Translational Immunology seeks to cover basic, translational and clinical studies in all aspects of human immunology, including experimental models specific to human diseases.

Topics of particular interest within the journal’s scope include, but are not limited to, those listed below:

  • cutting edge approaches including in vivo models of human disease that shed light on the mechanisms of immunity
  • clinical studies with relevance to autoimmunity transplantation and tumor immunotherapy
  • cutting edge immunoassays for monitoring clinical trials/patient responses
  • infection and immunity – correlates of protection
  • immunotherapies in relation to autoimmunity, primary and secondary immunodeficiencies, complement disorders and allergies
  • pathogenesis and correlates of protection for autoimmune and endocrine disorders, infectious disease, malignancy and transplantation
