Comparative and Veterinary Immunology Group

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 the August 2018 edition of Immunology News.
