The British Society for Immunology is here to represent all immunologists working in science, healthcare and industry. Our committees are vital in leading our work, making numerous decisions about how the Society is run, what activities we focus on and what support we provide to members. We look forward to working with all our new committee members in the coming months to forward the Society’s mission to promote excellence in immunology research, scholarship and clinical practice to improve human and animal health.
