Discover images and stories from a wide range of vaccine researchers, as we look at a day in their life.

A summary of what we do and don't know about the immunology of infection with the new Coronavirus.

Dr Divya Shah has been a Trustee on the BSI Board since 2018. She applied for the position to broaden her knowledge of the Society's activities, advance our mission to support early career researchers and promote equal opportunities in immunology. Here, she shares her reflections from her term so far and encourages BSI members to considering applying in the current committee nominations.

Over the next few months, we're launching several projects to highlight the importance of vaccination in improving global public health. Discover how we're representing the voice of researchers who work on vaccines and how BSI members can get involved.
