World PI Week & Day of Immunology

Dear friends and colleagues,

in the near future, the World primary immunodeficiency week (World PI Week) will take place (22.-29.4.2017).

As tradition holds, the Jeffrey Modell Foundation will organize a balloon launch event, in order to spread the general awareness about primary immunodeficiencies and as commemoration of Jeffrey Modell, the first “bubble boy”. This year, the balloons will be virtual and therefore more easily accessible – find more information on the event’s homepage.


29.4. will also be the Day of Immunology, as part of which the Academy of Sciences of the Czech republic will organize a day of lectures on immunology. This will happen on 4.5. and more information will be available here.
