On behalf of the University Council of the Medical University of Vienna, I would like to extend my sincere welcome to the 19th International Congress of Immunology to be held in Vienna from August 17-22, 2025. The fact, that three members of the Center for Pathophysiology, Infectiology and Immunology are the local spearheads of the IUIS Congress, illustrates how active Immunology Research is in Austria. The field of Immunology has a long tradition in Vienna and also today represents a major field of interest for the Medical University of Vienna regarding the development of precision medicine-based approaches for prevention of diseases. Medical University of Vienna is one of the longest-established medical education and research facilities in Europe. With almost 8,000 students, it is currently the largest medical training center in the German-speaking countries. With more than 6,000 employees, 30 departments and two clinical institutes, 12 medical theory centers and numerous highly specialized laboratories, it is one of Europe's leading research establishments in the biomedical sector. On behalf of University Council of the Medical University of Vienna I warmly welcome guests from all over the world to the IUIS congress. In my opinion Immunology Research is a magic key for the development of modern diagnostics and treatments for diseases which are severe threats for human mankind. I therefore gladly accepted to serve as a Congress Patron for this eminent event.
