Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences is one of the oldest universities in the world, which has been established in 1956. Initially, two faculties of agriculture and medicine were built, and gradually this university expanded to its present form. Ahvaz Jundishapur University has always tried to contribute to the development of medical knowledge and the forward scientific movements in the country. We are proud to host prominent scientists and intellectuals at home and abroad at the 15th International Congress of Immunology and Allergy, 2021. Undoubtedly, the gathering of educated researchers with young students and researchers will be a good opportunity to exchange updated knowledge and scientific-research experiences.
Fourteen sessions of this congress are a valuable scientific heritage that has a significant quota in the development of immunology in the world. This year, the congress has been defined in 20 panels, with different themes. However, two new panels entitled "Immuno-pathogenesis and diagnosis of Covid-19" and "Covid-19 treatment", are included in the list of panels, highlighting the importance of the position of immunology in overcoming the challenges posed by the recent epidemic.
Finally, I would like to thank my colleagues in the scientific and executive team, especially Dr. Ali Khodadadi (Head of Scientific Committee) who have worked tirelessly to hold the Congress as well as possible.
