The Canadian Society for Immunology (CSI) is an organization that fosters and supports Immunology research throughout Canada. Founded in 1966, the society provides a focal point for Canadian Immunology by organizing an annual spring meeting that alternates between the west and the east of the country. Quanterix is proud to sponsor this event with a virtual exhibit and a video presentation which will run in conjunction with the block symposium:
8:00 – 9:50 AM June 1st- Symposium I: Single Cell Approaches to Study Tissue Immunity

The CSI acts as a liaison for communication between its membership and national funding agencies such as the CIHR Institute for Infection and Immunity. CSI was one of the founding members of the International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS) and participates in international events through this umbrella organization. Canada hosted the 6th and the 12th IUIS International Congress of Immunology meetings in Toronto in 1986 and in Montreal in 2004.

The CSI also collaborates with the American Association of Immunologists and sponsors a symposium at their annual meetings. The Canadian Society for Immunology is managed by a council consisting of a President, past president, vice president, treasurer/secretary, six councilors, and a member responsible for outreach. CSI currently has more than 250 members representing universities, hospitals, and research institutes across Canada. To learn more about CSI, please visit the organization’s website.
