Providing on-line immunology education

 

Immunopaedia.org is the official educational provider of online pre-course material for IUIS immunology courses in the developing world and in other countries. Supported and working closely with the IUIS Education Committee, Immunopaedia delivers relevant and current educational content to provide frameworks of knowledge to IUIS course participants before they embark on face-to-face courses.
Online pre-course material on Immunopaedia becomes available 6 weeks before an IUIS course. Participants are allowed time to study the content, read the suggested journals, listen to interviews with researchers and test their knowledge through quizzes. Content is produced by blending material derived from Bellanti’s Immunology IV textbook,current journals and material provided by the various course facilitators  thus ensuring the correct information is accurately conveyed.Immunopaedia provides basic and IUIS course specific immunology material that aims to prime participants with relevant knowledge to ensure they get the very best out of their respective IUIS courses.
Immunopaedia is an educational website which aims to promote knowledge and research in the field of immunology worldwide and was founded in 2006 in South Africa by Professor Clive Gray. The aim was originally to provide an open-access and easy-to-understand summary of the effects of HIV infection on the immune system and to facilitate improvement in clinical practice. Immunopaedia has since progressed to include more general immunology knowledge by providing open-access immunology educational resources, clinical case studies, interviews with prominent immunologists and up-to-date news on discoveries and advances in immunology and health.
