The European Journal of Immunology (EJI) is a basic immunology research journal, focusing on various aspects of immunology including, but not limited to:

  • antigen processing
  • cellular immune response
  • immunity to infection
  • immunomodulation
  • innate immunity
  • molecular immunology
  • leukocyte signalling
  • clinical immunology
  • new technology

Established in 1971, the Journal has been serving the needs of the immunology community worldwide with objective enthusiasm. While mechanistic insight, which helps us better understand the workings of the immune system is of great importance for EJI, we are also interested in studies that contain thought-provoking immunological findings. EJI is the official journal of the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS).
