The Book

A valuable tool for immunological education

The Japanese Society for Immunology first published Karada wo Mamoru Meneki no Fushigi as part of its outreach efforts for the 2008 Day of Immunology. Recognising the value of such a resource in making immunology accessible to the public, particularly adolescents, EFIS translated the Japanese text to English and released Your Amazing Immune System - How it Protects Your Body to celebrate the 2009 Day of Immunology. Since then, the book has been translated with EFIS support into 20 other languages, the versions of which may be downloaded from the links provided here.
