Wild and Comparative Immunology (WACI) workshop in Tasmania (5-6 December 2019)

We are organising a two day Wild and Comparative Immunology (WACI) workshop in Tasmania (5-6 December 2019) just before the ­Annual Scientific Meeting of The Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology meeting. We aim to showcase complementary research and technology areas in the field of comparative immunology and biology (wild immunology, ecoimmunology, disease ecology). We have recently outlined some of our rationale for these topics in an eLetter to Science. The workshop intends to cover a number four primary themes: 1) Reagent, techniques, and applications 2) Real-world immunology 3) New model species development 4) Wild and Comparative Immunology in…
