Immunology and Covid-19 seen through the eyes of our kids
Noushin Mossadegh-Keller from CIML (Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS, Inserm) is the ambassador for the French Society for Immunology (SFI) to promote the International Day of Immunology 2021. The International Union of Immunology Societies (IUIS) and European Federation of Immunology Societies (EFIS) join forces every year to highlight and promote research in Immunology through this international day. This year the topic is Immunology and Covid-19. Each national society for immunology is represented by an ambassador carrying a communication campaign popularized to the general public in a free format. SFI (French Society for Immunology), a society founded in 1966 in Paris, directed by president Pr. Renato Monteiro, aims to encourage, promote and carry out any action that can help the development of Immunology. This year Noushin Mossadegh-Keller is the ambassador on behalf of SFI for the project: "Immunology and Covid-19 seen through the eyes of our kids". A 3 minutes video interviewing children with an educational focus based on 3 questions: what is Immunology, the Covid-19 virus and the vaccine. This video will be broadcast internationally on April 29. This international immunology day is a nice opportunity to show to the general public the mobilization of the scientific/immunological community in France.
