South Wales Immunology Group

The South Wales Immunology Group is a regional group of the British Society for Immunology. Its objective is to provide a forum for scientists to promote active discussions, enhance collaborations, and foster common immunological interests in the South of Wales and further afield. This is done in close interaction with the Institute of Infection and Immunity and the Systems Immunity Research Institute at Cardiff University.

We welcome all interested parties to our events, in particular students and those new to the region. Please contact us and join our mailing list to be informed about our seminar series of high-profile local, national and international researchers but also to learn about major immunological developments and current job vacancies.

Our seminars are open to anyone interested in immunology and, unless otherwise noted, are held are held every Wednesday at 1pm in the Main Seminar Room UG16, Henry Wellcome Building, Heath Park, Cardiff.
