Mijn afweer.nl: everything about our immune system

How does the immune system protect us against infections? Why is vaccination important? What happens during an allergic reaction? Or autoimmunity? What is cancer immunotherapy? On April 29th, which was the Day of Immunology, the Dutch Society for Immunology (NVVI) launched the new website mijnafweer.nl for the general Dutch public where answers to these questions can be found.

The text was written by Prof.dr. Marjolein van Egmond, and illustrations and animations were made by Prof.dr. Georg Kraal.

You are invited to have a look at it and use it to explain the workings of our immune system. Illustrations will be made available on request for teaching purposes.
