BSI Midlands Immunology Group

Welcome to the pages for Immunology in the Midlands. We are a group of scientists, academics, clinicians and students at all levels that share a passion for researching how the immune system works. Through these pages we are going to advertise local seminars, jobs and immunology related activities, and we are open to suggestions. Our vision is to create a forum where we can showcase work from local immunologists and spark discussions with other established and budding immunologists.

Please get in touch, comment on the content and contribute to the dialogue. 

Read our recent Immunology News article here on how we have widened our geographical scope and our exciting ongoing activities.

Let us know if you would like to get involved in the committee.
