Committees & Issues

Committees & Issues

At an IMUNA conference, each division, forum or committee, will work on three issues, these being on (current) topics relative to the chosen theme of the conference. After the committees and issues are announced, they will be displayed below. The names of our Student Officers will be added to their respective committees on this page after they have been appointed. If we receive a Research Report from a Student Officer it will get added as a download to its related issue through the use of a hyperlink.
