POSTPONED Mathematical modelling in immunology: Molecular mechanisms of immune responses

Microsoft Research Lab, 21 Station Road, Cambridge, CB1 1FB
Thursday, 25 June, 2020 - 09:15 to Friday, 26 June, 2020 - 17:15

The British Society for Immunology and the BSI's Mathematical Modelling Affinity Group have decided to postpone this event 'Mathematical modelling in immunology: Molecular mechanisms of immune responses', which was scheduled to take place on 25-26 June 2020 in Cambridge, UK. 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. 

Please note that the rescheduled date has not yet been confirmed. 

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 you share our collective disappointment that we are unable to go ahead with this event. 

If you have any questions, please email

Thank you for your support and understanding.

The British Society for Immunology's Mathematical Modelling Affinity Group is pleased to bring you 'Mathematical modelling in immunology: Molecular mechanisms of immune responses' taking place on 25-26 June 2020 in Cambridge, UK. 

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists working in the areas of experimental and theoretical immunology, to discuss current challenges on immunology and infection modelling in public health. The main goals of the meeting will be:

  • to bring together researchers and clinicians from a variety of backgrounds to discuss the importance of immunology and infection modelling in public health
  • to encourage inter-disciplinary (specifically mathematics and immunology) discussions in order to guide the development of new mathematical models, given the experimental and clinical data
  • to expose post-graduate students, working in this area, to current immunological challenges and open questions


Abstract submission will open soon.


Confirmed speakers:

Thomas Finnie (Public Health England)
John James (University of Warwick)
Ignacio Moraga (University of Dundee)
Olivier Restif (University of Cambridge)
Steven Riley (Imperial College)
Michael Tildesley (University of Warwick)

A full programme will be available shortly.
