National Institutes of Health Immunology Interest Group

Welcome to the Immunology Interest Group

The Immunology Interest Group (IIG) organizes activities designed to promote information exchange and interactions among NIH scientists interested in the field of immunology, broadly defined.  Interactions are facilitated via weekly meetings on current topics as well as an Annual Immunology Workshop.

All IIG activities are organized by the Steering Committee, whose members are elected annually by the entire IIG community after the Immunology Workshop. The 2015–2016 IIG Steering Committee members are:

Daniel Barber (NIAID)
Yasmine Belkaid (NIAID)
Nicolas Bouladoux (NIAID)
Vanja Lazarevic (NCI)
Warren J. Leonard (NHLBI)
Michail Lionakis (NIAID)
Katrin Mayer-Barber (NIAID)
Art Shaffer (NCI)
Polly Matzinger (NIAID)
Nicholas P. Restifo (NCI)
Pamela L. Schwartzberg (NHGRI)
Howard Young (NCI)
Jinfang Zhu (NIAID)
Rachel Gottshalk (NIAID)
Oliver Harrison (NIAID)
Ashley Moseman (NINDS)
Amy Palin (NICHD)

IIG seminars are typically held every Wednesday at 4:15 p.m. in the Lipsett Auditorium in Building 10. Offsite NIH users, for example at Frederick or Twinbrook, can access the live stream via  NIH Videocast. On-campus users are asked to attend the actual talk and NOT live stream the talks. It is important that our speakers have a dynamic audience, and you get valuable interaction time with others in the immunology community.
