SIGNET 2022: Scottish Immunology Groups Network symposium

Perth Concert Hall, Perth, UK


The BSI Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Tayside, and West of Scotland Immunology Groups welcome you to join us in the Perth Concert Hall, Perth, UK on Wednesday 2 March 2022 for our first joint symposium – SIGNET (Scottish Immunology Groups Network).  SIGNET is a full-day in-person symposium that aims to bring together immunologists from across Scotland to share our research and foster new research networks and collaborations. 

We are pleased to welcome two invited keynote speakers, Dr Theresa Alenghat (Cincinnati Children's Hospital, USA) and Professor Matteo Iannacone (IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute, Milan, Italy) in addition to invited speakers from each group; Dr Cecile Benezech (University of Edinburgh), Dr Leo Carlin (Beatson Institute, University of Glasgow), Dr Ignacio Moraga Gonzalez (University of Dundee), and Professor Heather Wilson (University of Aberdeen).

A strong focus of SIGNET is promoting early career researchers and eight oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts (two per group) in addition to a poster session with prizes available. 

SIGNET will also feature a special public engagement session with BSI Public Engagement Secretary Professor Donald Davidson (University of Edinburgh), and a public engagement fair to promote the fantastic engagement activities that have been developed by our members. You are welcome to submit a public engagement-based abstract for a poster presentation and/or if you are interested in featuring a public engagement activity, please contact for more information.
