The British Society for Immunology is delighted to bring you our new Annual Review, showcasing the activities and achievements of the Society from 2019-20. We are now almost at the end of our current strategic plan and the past 12 months have seen the organisation achieve some important milestones in our support for members and engaging on immunology in the public arena.
This year saw us significantly grow our membership base to over 4,300 as well as running our largest ever BSI Congress with 1,400 of you attending. Activity highlights include a packed schedule of Regional and Affinity Group events, having a significant influence on the national debate around childhood vaccination uptake through our Celebrate Vaccines campaign, and strengthening our grants and training programme. When the pandemic hit, we also stepped up to support our membership with the creation of our webinar programme and resources hub and provided a strong voice in the media and to Government around the importance of immunology research and understanding to hastening pandemic control.
None of these achievements would have been possible without the support of our members. Be it through volunteering on our committees and boards, editing our journals, running our Regional and Affinity groups or helping us with media, policy and public engagement activities, our members are the lifeblood of the Society. We’re incredibly grateful to you all for your help and support throughout the year.
