We regret to inform you that the British Society for Immunology and the BSI Ulster Immunology Group have decided to cancel this event 'Immunology without borders: Innate and adaptive immunity cross-talk', which was scheduled to take place on 18-19 June 2020 in Belfast. This is due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19. 

We have emailed all delegates who have registered for this meeting – please check your inbox for further information on what to do. 

This was a hard decision for us as our events programme is at the heart of what we do and the activities that we provide for our members.  After carefully reviewing the situation, we decided that cancellation was the most responsible and sensible option for us at this time. We're sure that you share in our collective disappointment that we are unable to go ahead with this event.

Thank you all for your support.
