About

The Immune Polymorphism Society is an international membership organization of scientists dedicated to understanding the genetic and functional variation of the vertebrate immune system, and the vertebrate immune system’s role in health, disease, and evolutionary biology. Together with its members, the Society’s vision is increased collaboration, engagement and sharing of domain knowledge between scientists focused on any aspects of immune-related genomics. The specific objectives and purpose of the Society are:

  • to provide a forum for basic science, and clinical, industrial and educational applications related to immune polymorphism;

  • to share and disseminate research findings related to immune polymorphism;

  • to assist in the integration of immune polymorphism-related data resources, and;

  • to promote the development of secure open-source, cloud-based technologies that advance the analysis, collection, exchange and storage of immune-related genomic data.
