History of ISDCI
The international Congresses have always played important roles in the history of our Society. They have been crucial in promoting interests in developmental and comparative immunology worldwide. There are no better ways to exchange scientific views and experimental data tha at such international meetings, where experienced scientists, postdocs, and young PhD students meet not only during scientific sessions, but also at informal coffee breaks, meals, drinks, and laboratory visits.
Since the founding of ISDCI in 1980, there have been six Congresses in Europe, four in North America, one in Australia, and one in Asia. This website provides an interesting overview of these previous international meetings. Enjoy reading about them and seeing a few pictures of these events!
