IUIS 2018 Executive Report.

Alberto Mantovani (IUIS President)   07-02-2019    


I would like to provide our Constituency with an executive report on IUIS activities in 2018, in a continuing effort to strengthen communication and transparency in the Union. On May 13th 2018 the IUIS Council met in Cancun, Mexico, on the occasion of the congress of the Latin American Federation of Immunological Societies (ALAI). The Council was preceded for the second time by a meeting of Committee Chairs, which was characterized by a productive discussion. Committees are the backbone of IUIS and provide an invaluable service to our Community and to Biomedicine at large. As such, they are a priority for IUIS.

Alberto Mantovani
(IUIS President)
