The NIH Immunology Interest Group (IIG) organizes activities designed to promote information exchange and interactions among NIH scientists interested in the field of immunology. Interactions are facilitated via weekly meetings on current topics as well as an Annual Immunology Workshop. The IIG of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is a voluntary organization of investigators and trainees who are members of the intramural research community of the NIH and affiliated research and teaching organizations that promotes the mission of the NIH in research and training in the areas of immunology and infectious diseases. The IIG serves as the organizational structure for intramural researchers to promote high academic standards of research and training and foster the development of new biomedical knowledge and the translation of research knowledge into new preventive measures and therapies for human diseases by facilitating interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research. The IIG was instituted in 1993. The IIG is the largest interest group on campus with over 500 active members in 19 different institutes and over 1000 subscribers to the list-serve.
