BSI Immunology Awards

The BSI Immunology Awards recognise those advancing the field and enabling immunology to thrive, and further our mission to provide sector-leading support to immunologists from all levels and sectors.

We invite our members and immunologists around the world to shine a spotlight on the stars shaping our future.

You will have the opportunity to raise recognition of the exceptional people working hard, publicly or behind the scenes, to deliver positive outcomes for health in a variety of ways, including at different career stages and sectors.

Nominations can be made via self-nomination or for colleagues. This is your chance to celebrate and inspire others!

*Nominations are now closed for 2023 and will reopen next year*

The winners of the inaugural awards were announced at the BSI Immunology Awards Ceremony on 20 April, 2023 at the Royal College of Physicians, London.

In line with our Diversity & Inclusion framework, we encourage nominations that reflect the diversity of our community.
