What is the EDU?

The IUIS Education Committee is mandated to help organizing immunology

courses in the developing world. The courses are aimed at discussing issues

and problems that are pertinent to the developing world while providing an

update on relevant current issues and technologies in Immunology.


Field of action

We primarily support attendance and participation of graduate students, post-doctoral

fellows and young investigators. We also support attendance and participation of students

and young immunologists from the developing world to well established Immunology courses

held in other countries.Most educators implicated feel that participation in a targeted course

taught by local and international speakers and with a relatively low number of participants

is the best way to contribute to dissemination of immunology and implementation

of effective laboratory practice in the developing world.


Our annual budget is limited and we generally do not give more than US$ 5000 per course.

IUIS money must go towards students expenditures, traveling and course materials and

cannot be used to reimburse the teaching staff. We often pair with other Federations

and Societies to co-sponsor courses.
