The AAI Centennial Timeline, which debuted at IMMUNOLOGY 2013™, chronicles the advances in science and immunology made over the last century by AAI members and other scientists, placing those developments alongside key political and cultural events in U.S. and world history.

Digital Timeline

A digital version of the AAI Centennial Timeline is now available online. It includes all of the events and images from the original timeline and incorporates new content to provide a truly interactive experience—videos, citations and links to hundreds of digitally-available journal articles, and links to other sections of the AAI website where you can learn more about many of the individuals mentioned.

This webpage is the companion site to the physical timeline and includes photo credits for the images used in that exhibit and acknowledgements for those who helped make the timeline a reality.
