The International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS), a member of the International Council for Science, is an organization which serves as an umbrella organization for many national and regionally grouped immunological societies. The organization was founded in 1969. The ten founding member societies were the American Association of Immunologists, British Society for Immunology, Canadian Society for Immunology, Dutch Society for Immunology, Gesellschaft fur Immunologie, Israel Immunological Society, Polish Society of Immunology, Scandinavian Society for Immunology, Societe Francaise d’immunologie, and Yugoslav Immunological Society.

Every three years the IUIS organizes an international congress, called the International Congress of Immunology (ICI), with one of its national society members. The 2016 ICI was held in Melbourne, Australia. Last ICI (rebranded as IUIS2019) took place in Beijing, China in 2019. Cape Town, South Africa will host IUIS2022.
Frontiers in Immunology is the IUIS' official journal. Immunopaedia.org is the official educational provider of online pre-course material for IUIS immunology courses in the developing world and in other countries.
The standing committees of the IUIS are Clinical Immunology, Education, Gender Equality and Career Development, Immunotherapy, Inborn Errors of Immunity, Nomenclature, Publications, Quality Assessment and Standardization, Vaccines, and Veterinary.
