***The Neuroimmunology Affinity Group is looking to recruit a new treasurer, secretary and ordinary members***
Promoting neuroimmunology – searching for young talent
Although the brain is considered an immune-privileged organ, there is a clear interaction between the immune system and the function of the nervous system in many disorders of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Promoting neuroimmunology in a world where neurodegenerative diseases are rapidly becoming a major concern has not been difficult. However, the Neuroimmunology Affinity Group is very eager to recruit young talent and implement new directions. For this reason we would like to invite applications for the positions of treasurer, secretary and ordinary members.
To apply, you must be a member of the BSI. please send your CV and a motivation letter outlining of why you would like to get involved in the group and what you could bring to the position to Group Chair, Professor Sandra Amor, at email@example.com.
The remit of the Neuroimmunology Group is to foster communication and collaboration between groups working in any field linking neurobiology and immunology. Although the brain is considered an immune-privileged organ, there is a clear interaction between the immune system and the function of the nervous system. The further understanding on these interactions may provide novel insights in the pathophysiology of several neurological diseases.
We aim at organizing meetings addressing this topic and the group will propose sessions for the main yearly BSI Congress as well as the Association of British Neurologists.
We welcome new members interested in this area. Please contact the group chair for more information.
