> Dear colleague,
> During the recent 3rd Congress of the Federation of African
> Immunological Societies (FAIS) in Cape Town (9-13/03/97) it was
> decided that there is a major need for improving communication between
> immunologists conducting research in Africa. An obvious and
> cost-effective way of doing so is by improving electronic
> communication. It was thus decided to establish a socalled listserv,
> which is a sort of e-mail discussion group to which anybody interested
> in the field of immunological research in Africa may subscribe. After
> subscribing, any e-mail message you submit to the list will be
> automatically broadcast to all subscribers. Similarly, you will
> receive all messages posted to the list by other subscribers.
> With the help of Ross Coppel, who is running a similar listserv for
> the malaria research community, this African immunology listserv
> (called FAIS) is now up and running. Below you'll find instructions on
> how to subscribe to the list etc.
> I sincerely hope that you will find this initiative a helpful tool in
> your research activities, and shall be pleased to hear any comments
> you may have regarding the list.
> Yours sincerely,
> Lars Hviid
