ISSNAF Stories: Interview with Dr. Alessandro Sette

Dr. Sette is an immunologist at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology and the newest member of ISSNAF Scientific Council.

Dr. Sette tells us about Dr. Fauci showcasing his findings on COVID-19 in Congress and at the White House, about his research on COVID-19 and more, about the most exciting future directions in immunology, about #issnaf, and, of course, Italy. Finally, young scholars will find some useful advice.
