About us

The British Society for Immunology's mission is to support our immunology community in driving scientific discovery and making a positive impact on health. We accomplish this by:

  • Providing the immunology community with support to establish more connections and enhance collaboration, both within their field and with other related scientific disciplines and between sectors.
  • Providing sector-leading support to attract and retain talent in immunology.
  • Influencing and improving the external environment to enable immunology to thrive and deliver positive outcomes for health.


The BSI is one of the oldest, largest, and most active, immunology societies in the world and is the largest in Europe.
