The ISI was formed in 1984 and in 1985 we hosted our inaugural research conference. Since then the society has grown from strength to strength. We now represent over 200 immunology researchers across Ireland.  Our main activities include our annual research meeting. This is a two day event bringing together world-class international and national immunology researchers, including early career and established researchers. Each year we award the “ISI Annual Award for Immunology” to an exceptional immunology researcher either in Ireland or abroad who has Irish roots. Finally, we run a number of outreach events dedicated to educating and entertaining the public on the subject of immunology.



The mission of the Irish Society for Immunology is to promote excellence in the discipline of Immunology across the island of Ireland and to raise the profile of Irish immunologists worldwide.

We aim to promote the study and research into basic and clinical immunology. To facilitate the exchange of information, education and career development among basic and translational researchers, clinicians and young investigators and to promote public awareness and appreciate of Immunology as it relates to health and disease.


Our vision is to make the discipline of Immunology accessible and exciting for all by promoting and supporting excellent research, education and clinical practice of Immunology in Ireland to improve our lives. ​

Our vision is to provide opportunities to both the research and the public community to fully engage with Immunology in Ireland. To make the discipline accessible and exciting for all, and to promote awareness of the excellent Immunology research being conducted in Ireland. To provide networking and career opportunities for all those with an interest in Immunology research and to inspire future generations to become interested in Immunology and how it can impact every aspect of our lives.
