We are pleased to announce the upcoming BSI summer school to be held 16 - 19 July 2017 at the University of Leicester.

The event will be hosted by Professor Dave Cousins, University of Leicester with support from the British Society for Immunology. 

The event will continue a tradition of high quality summer schools delivered by the BSI and is aimed primarily at PhD students or postdocs new to immunology. 

We have assembled a stellar list of Immunologists to deliver the summer school including Professors Anne O’Garra FRS (Francis Crick Institute), Peter Openshaw (Imperial College), Janet Lord (university of Birmingham) among others. 

The programme will provide plenty of time to interact with the speakers on an informal level at tutorial style sessions and at social events, including the summer school gala dinner at the National Space Centre. 

*Early bird registration has now been extended until the 12 June 2017.
