Symposia and seminars
Researchers at the forefront of immunology present their most recent findings and hold discussions.
We actively hold seminars throughout the year to promote research and foster the next generation of researchers. The ImmunoSeminar series, which is held several times a year, is an online seminar series featuring prominent researchers from abroad.
Open only to IFReC members, the IFReC colloquia are held once every two months when members present their most recent research progress including unpublished achievements for discussion by all members.
International School on Advanced Immunology
We are developing the Immunology Winter School, which was co-hosted with the Singapore Immunology Network (SigN) until 2019, into an international school of immunology co-hosted with the University of Bonn, Germany. Young researchers selected from applicants from around the world give lectures and research presentations over several days, where participants and lecturers interact and discuss prospects for immunology and future collaborations.
Science Cafe on the Edge
The science cafe is an event held in casual surroundings, such as a cafe, to discuss science. The IFReC Science Cafe: On the Edge encourages researchers themselves to explain their immunology research in terms the general public can understand.
IFReC holds exhibits to introduce IFReC activities at various events both in Japan and overseas such as the Super Science High School Student Fair and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting as part of the WPI joint outreach program.
IFReC accepts visits from high school groups and others, who wish to see the facilities, have lectures and experience conducting an experiment. In addition, researchers accept invitations to high schools and universities to give lectures.
