Dear Fellow AAI Members:
Recent political events in the United States have caused distress to many of our members and have led some of our international members and colleagues to question the values of our great nation. This is deeply troubling to me as well: as your president, as a scientist, and as a U.S. citizen.
As you know, The American Association of Immunologists (AAI) is the nation’s largest professional society of research scientists and physicians who are dedicated to advancing our understanding of the complexities of the immune system and applying these discoveries to the development of urgently needed treatments and cures. We welcome members of every race, religion, ethnicity, age, disability, gender, and sexual preference and orientation. We take great pride in our diversity and in our international members, with whom we collaborate and from whom we learn. We believe that every member is important and contributes to the accomplishment of our shared goals.
