Immunity: Harnessing the power and specificity of the immune system to beat killer diseases - a three-part sampler of the research in the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct.
From 21-26 August 2016, over 3000 experts in the field of immunology descended on Melbourne for the International Congress of Immunology 2016 (ICI 2016 ).
