World Day of Immunology
The Department of Microbiology and Immunology hosted a successful public lecture last week to celebrate World Day of Immunology. The World Day of Immunology is commemorated every year by over 30 countries world wide and aims to bring immunology research to the public. This year we were fortunate to have Dr Nikki Turner, the director of New Zealand's Immunisation Advisory Centre, speak to a large public audience about the history and relevance of vaccination, and the impact it has had on New Zealand and worldwide. Happily this coincided with National Immunisation Week.
