The Comparative and Veterinary Immunology Group aims to bring together veterinary, human and mouse immunologists and provide a forum for discussion, collaboration and exchange of ideas. To achieve these aims the CVIG will organise focussed meetings and conferences or themed sessions within conferences such as the BSI annual congress. Learn more about the aims and work of CVIG in our article in Immunology News.
We're pleased to announce a new one-day meeting focusing on T cell biology from our popular 'Frontiers in comparative immunology' series. This meeting, taking place virtually on Thursday 18 March 2021 from 10:00 to 16:45 GMT, will bring together experts in mouse, avian, bovine, porcine and human T cells to share their insights as to how best to harness T cell immunity. This meeting is organised in conjunction with the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council UK and International Veterinary Vaccinology Networks.
