The International Eosinophil Society, Inc. (IES) is an organization of scientists and clinicians interested in the eosinophil, a blood cell strongly associated with many diseases. The society sponsors biennial meetings to review new information about the eosinophil and its roles in health and disease.
IES has been established to bring together scientists around the world who are engaged in research in the field of Eosinophil Biology and Eosinophil Disorders with a view to facilitating exchange of ideas and information about this fascinating inflammatory cell type and its role in diseases.
Discussions will cover all aspects of eosinophil biology, ranging from mechanisms regulating their development and differentiation to their function and activation both in vitro and in vivo. They will focus on both cellular responses as well as the function of eosinophil products and include their regulation by pharmacological agents.
IES provides a framework for discussing research regarding eosinophil disorders. In order to facilitate the optimal exchange of ideas regarding rare eosinophil diseases, the IES holds biennial meetings.

Eosinophils in Health and Disease
Edited By James J. Lee and Helene F. Rosenberg
Eosinophils in Health and Disease is now available for purchase in hardcover or Kindle format. Click HERE to purchase your copy.
(Elsevier Publishers, 2012) is an all-encompassing treatise that includes both basic and clinical research as well as cutting-edge insights into the biology and physiology of the eosinophilic leukocyte. Written by established and up-and-coming leaders in the field, this bookcovers the history and evolution, eosinophil structure, essential functions, role(s) in promoting homeostasis, and its varied contributions to the dysregulation and pathologies associated with numerous disorders and disease states. This book is much more than a simple compilation of latest facts, but provides unique and valuable opinions and “outside-the-box” perspectives. Eosinophils in Health and Disease is an essential reference for researchers, clinical investigators, and advanced students in the fields of immunology, autoimmunity, asthma and allergy research, and cell biology.
