This exhibition gives an insight into the story of protective immunity against infection and the opposite process of allergy. Starting with early milestones, it highlights some of the developments up to today, focusing on some notable Dundee researchers past and present. It also explores Dundee's own vaccination campaigns to cope with outbreaks of diphtheria and polio.
