The 2019 British Society for Immunology Congress, which took place in Liverpool on 2-5 December, has now come to an end. We'd like to say a huge thank you to all our speakers, presenters, chairs, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates who helped to make the Congress a success. Thank you too to our wonderful Congress Committee, and in particular our Congress Secretary, Gary Entrican, for all their hard work and dedication in bringing together such an excellent line up of sessions and speakers. In total, we welcomed over 1,400 attendees through the doors at Liverpool - a new record for our Congress as a stand alone event. All abstracts from the Congress are still available to read on the Congress website.
Congratulations go to our prize winners from the Bright Sparks in Immunology sessions and poster prizes. You can read more about them here. Additionally, we were delighted to present our Immunology Teaching Excellence Award to Joanne Pennock from the University of Manchester.
Delegates should now have received an email containing a link to a feedback survey. Please do take the time to fill this out and tell us about your experiences at the BSI Congress. It is only through hearing from you what you liked and what we could do better that we can make future Congresses even better! Once you have returned your survey, you will be sent your certificate of attendance.
Never fear, the BSI Congress will return in 2020 when we will be going north to the beautiful city of Edinburgh. The Congress will take place on 30 November until 3 December 2020. Plenary sessions will include: neuroimmunology; stromal immunology; T cell exhaustion; immunometabolism; lessons from challenge models; immunogenetics. Follow #BSI20 on social media for updates.
