Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Here enclosed you will find the “IUIS Without Borders” Newsletter with a new format. Over the past few years, efforts have been made to improve communication within IUIS. It is part of a comprehensive strategic effort by the Presidency and Executive Committee as indicated our website. The Newsletter will serve as a communication tool within our community highlighting the activity of Committees. Committees are the backbone of IUIS and I am sure that I interpret the feelings of all of us expressing our gratitude to Committee Chairs and Members for their dedication and efforts.

We start with a report from our Education Committee, a major thrust of our effort aimed at fostering Immunology with a focus on developing countries. We will also be giving you updates on the other IUIS stakeholders such as the National Society Members and Regional Federations. But also our Partners & Affiliates, such as Frontiers in Immunology, the official IUIS Journal. In
