The journal Developmental and Comparative Immunology is sponsored by the Society, which provides editorial services, and is the journal of choice in which many members publish their research.

Members of the Society conduct research on all aspects of natural and acquired immune systems in animals throughout the phylogenetic spectrum, including invertebrates and both lower and higher vertebrates. By studying the development, functions, and mechanisms operating in these diverse systems, members seek to understand how earlier evolved species coped with potential pathogens and parasites, and how “advanced” (i.e. mammalian and avian) immune systems evolved.
