Get ready to be IMMspired

Immunology is all around us.

From the constant battle against invading pathogens — bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi — to continuous research in therapeutic targets for chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, autoimmunity, obesity, and much more.

The field of Immunology provides us with important understandings of how our bodies function in healthy scenarios and in disease.

This year, IMMspire will be hosting an IN-PERSON immunology-focused event on April 28-29, 2023, that aims to expose high school students to the fascinating field of immunology research through interactive, inquiry-based, and hands-on experiences. This year’s theme is cancer immunology.

We hope to inspire students to think about how immunology affects their day-to-day lives, and encourage students to inquire how the world works in a scientific way.

If you want to learn more about the event, or if you are interested in creating a new chapter at your university, please follow the links below.

Organized by graduate students from the Department of Immunology, the fourth annual IMMspire event will include a in-person event at The University of Toronto with guest speakers and interactive activities in April 2023. The event schedule is subject to change due to COVID-19.

The event will be composed of various inquiry-based workshops that explore immunology through real-world issues, experiments conducted in laboratories at UofT, a question and answer period with UofT students, and more!
