The IMS-JSI International Symposium on Immunology is a series of annual conferences hosted by the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences (IMS) in conjunction with the Japanese Society for Immunology (JSI).

This symposium aims to promote the progress of immunology and provide the participants, especially young scientists, with opportunities to learn about the most advanced topics in immunology and exchange their results.

At this symposium, entitled "Cultivating Immunity for Health", we will cover five topics: (1) gut immunity, (2) RNA biology and immunity, (3) behavior & immune system, (4) multi-omics analysis, and (5) immunodeficiency & gene therapy. Sixteen invited researchers will introduce their cutting-edge research. We believe that in this rapidly advancing era of science, direct interaction between people is the most effective way to exchange knowledge and inspire researchers to explore new directions. We hope the symposium will connect researchers across the world and contribute to future advances in immunological science. We welcome your registration and attendance.
