This event is part of the celebrations for International Day of Immunology 2011. The Day of Immunology was established in 2005 by the European Federation of Immunological Societies. It is held annually on 29 April and aims to strengthen public awareness of the importance of the immune system to each persons health and wellbeing. The success of the European awareness-raising program has led to the International Day of Immunology being celebrated worldwide since 2007.
