DoI 2021 - COVID-19

Make it YOUR day!

Day of Immunology 2021

 

The annual Day of Immunology (DoI) is just around the corner. Save the date: April 29, 2021!

The day is dedicated to increasing global awareness of the importance of immunology in the fight against infection, autoimmunity and cancer. EFIS and IUIS are working together to encourage national societies to participate in the Day of Immunology and to promote the benefits of immunology research. What are your plans for the DoI 2021? Please share your events with us (office@efis.org) so we can disseminate the information!

The Book

A valuable tool for immunological education

For the DoI 2009, EFIS first translated from Japanese to English a delightful text targeting children and lay people: Your amazing Immune System - How it protects your body. Several requests were since received from immunologists, patient organizations, educational facilities and laypeople worldwide, asking for the book in their own language, and to date, Your Amazing Immune System is now available in 19 different language versions.

Indeed, the success of Your Amazing Immune System was also the inspiration for the development and release of an interactive educational web adaptation: www.interactive-immunity.net. The website includes quizzes and games, printable content, further reading and full .pdf versions available for dowloading of Your Amazing Immune System of the 19 translations thus far produced.

The success of the project does indeed depend on active local immunologists, as regards to keeping the high quality of the book as well as its efficient distribution (e.g. via libraries, schools , exhibitions).

Anyone interested in translating and publishing the book in further languages should contact EFIS.
