Immunology in Japan

Prior to the 14th International Congress of Immunology held in Kobe in 2010, prominent researchers reviewed the history of immunology research in Japan. They also provided an up-date on recent progress worldwide.

The resulting series of articles appeared in International Immunology during 2009 and 2010 and are available free online .
