Welcome to
FIMSA Immunology Course

The field of Immunology aims to achieve targets towards early diagnosis of a host of diseases on one hand and to provide effective therapeutic modules towards their control on the other. The fundamental principles of normal immune responses are now better understood and many novel therapies have been developed on the elucidation of basic principles. Despite the rapid advances in identifying immune correlates and susceptibility genes, the underlying mechanisms and pathogenesis of many disorders like autoimmune and allergic diseases is still not fully understood. Better understanding of the immunological pathways is important for novel therapeutic inventions. This virtual course has been designed with the aim to expose the basic scientists as well as the clinicians to the Basic concepts of the immune system leading on to cover the new developments in vaccines and immune based therapeutics. There is a special session on Covid-19. A galaxy of national & international experts in the field have been chosen as speakers to teach in the course. The conveners of the course welcome you all to join this fascinating educational bonanza during this difficult time of Covid-19 pandemic, being conducted under the umbrella of Indian Immunology Society..
