About the SIAAIC

The Italian Society of Allergy, Asthma and Clinical Immunology (SIAAIC) is a scientific society strongly represented on the national territory with more than 650 active members working in university structures, hospital departments and territorial outpatients' clinics.

The main aim of SIAAIC is to improve allergy and clinical immunology as a discipline, through integrated actions of specialistic and post-specialistic education, promotion of knowledge in allergy and clinical immunology, and support of patients' organizations. These aspects are accomplished by giving the opportunity to its members (a third of which are Junior Members, under 35 years of age) to attend several educational events, participate in clinical/epidemiological research and patients-targeted informative events.

Moreover, many active SIAAIC members are worldwide well-known scientists and contribute to increase the knowledge in allergy and clinical immunology into the international scientific community.
