Comparative & Veterinary Immunology Group

The Comparative 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.

Do you have ideas, suggestions or want to collaborate or promote a relevant event? Please contact our Group Secretary, Sean Wattegedera.
