Today is the Day of Immunology, which is a day to celebrate immunology, and also inform the general public about the importance of the immune system, and our research.  This year the theme is 'Heroes and Villains'.  

The day will be celebrated with a range of events, including discovery tours, school workshops at GTAC, and a public lecture at the Peter Doherty Institute at 6pm which will be chaired and hosted by David Tarlinton, and will feature talks by Su Heinzel, Maria Liaskos and Dale Godfrey.

In addition, the Vaccination Cafe will be running tomorrow from 10:30am to 2:30pm at the Melbourne Town Hall, Swanston Room.  We will be providing free vaccines for season influenza and pertussis (whooping cough).  Bookings can be made online, or can be taken at the venue.  If you or your friends and family are interested in participating, please come along to any or all of these events, and take part in celebrating immunology.
