The Chinese Society for Immunology (CSI), a voluntary, national, academic, non-profit and non-governmental organization, formed from the national scientific and technical immunologists, is registered and established in accordance with the laws of China. CSI has grown out of the Chinese Committee for Immunology, which was founded in 1984, and became a member of the International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS) in the same year. The formal proceedings to establish CSI began in 1988 after it was approved and affiliated with the China Association for Science and Technology. In 1992, CSI became a member of The Federation of Immunological Societies of Asia-Oceania (FIMSA). Currently, the society possesses over 9600 members and 3500 members belong to the IUIS.
