Collaborate with Immunology Professionals

Interested in collaborating with fellow AAAAI members who share a particular interest in Education about Immune Mechanisms? The Mechanisms of Asthma and Allergic Inflammation (MAAI) Interest Section is the community for AAAAI members interested in focusing and networking on the cellular, molecular, genetic and biological processes that are involved in the pathogenesis of allergy, inflammation and asthma.

To learn more about the work of this interest section, contact one of the leaders below:

Chair: Roma Sehmi, PhD FAAAAI                    

Vice Chair: Angela Haczku, MD PhD FAAAAI           

Secretary: Magdalena M. Gorska, MD PhD FAAAAI        

Staff Liaison: Laura Bzdawka-Plizka         

Interested in aligning with MAAI?

Becoming part of the MAAI community network is as simple as linking to your AAAAI personal member profiles and updating your profile to reflect your primary membership as MAAI under the tab labeled Involvement.

Or, consider the work of the Cells and Mediators of Allergic Inflammation Committee. Its purpose is to support training, teaching and research in the mechanisms of asthma, allergy and immunologic disorders and to foster the development of academic fellows and junior faculty.  NOTE: Interest Section Committees are open to all members of the AAAAI.

Immune Mechanisms Resources for Patients

AAAAI’s Tools for the Public offers a variety of resources for patients, including videos, interactive quizzes, and downloadable handouts to learn more about allergic and immunologic conditions. These include Research Summaries of articles recently published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (JACI) and JACI: In Practice
