The academy has established the EAACI Sections on Basic & Clinical Immunology, Asthma, Pediatric, Dermatology and ENT. The sections are represented in the Executive Committee by their chairs and have the opportunity to propose task forces as well as joint sessions with appropriate specialised societies. Every 2 years, new board members, chair and secretary and ExCom members are elected.
Basic and Clinical Immunology
Interview with Jürgen Schwarze, Edinburgh University
Jürgen Schwarze explains how and which viral infections
“Severe respiratory viral infections, in early-life (…), convey a much higher risk of developing asthma.”
The WG for AllergoOncology is a hard-working group of enthusiastic academic and clinical experts in both, allergy and cancer with an innovative interdisciplinary agenda, driving novel ideas that link Allergy with several disciplines, for the benefit of patients and overall contributing to the research and translational aspirations and originality of EAACI.
Immunodulation & Nutrition
The aims of this group are to bring together the expertise of dieticians, clinicians, scientists and researchers across multiple disciplines including allergy, nutrition, immunology, genetics
The EAACI Interest Groups represent an area of more specific interest within allergology. Additionally, Interest Groups provide a focus for scientists and clinicians interested in particular aspects of allergic diseases. The Interest Group forms a focus for discussion at EAACI scientific meetings, provides input to the scientific programme, and can make proposals for the task forces. Every 2 years, new board members, chair and secretary and ExCom members will be elected.
The EAACI Working Groups are established as part of the Interest Groups or Sections. Each chair of the Working Group sits automatically as an additional board member in their respective Interest Group or Section board. The EAACI Working Groups represent relevant and growing scientific areas for the academy and have a clear link or common interest to their Interest Group or Sections.
Task forces are projects that deal with specific topics that are relevant, controversial or new in the field. All EAACI members can apply for a specific task forces in alignment with the chair and secretary of a specific section or interest group. All task forces are supported by EAACI and have been approved by the Executive Committee.
Task Forces can be found on the Knowledge Hub.
