Young Scandinavian Society for Immunology (ySSI) has launched!

Young Scandinavian Society for Immunology (ySSI) aims to build a network of early career researchers (ECRs) working in immunology in Norway, Finland, Iceland, Denmark, and Sweden, to disseminate their research, defend their interests and support their career development as well as to increase their visibility on both European and international level. 


ySSI is an initiative supported by the Scandinavian Society for Immunology (SSI). We are a part of the EFIS Young Immunologist Network (yEFIS) with currently more than 450 ECRs from all over Europe and over 24 national immunology societies (including us as ySSI). 


We have many exciting things planned, so please sign up at the link below so that you don’t miss out on information:


Best wishes,
