Discovery Immunology inaugural issue

Discovery Immunology Journal

We’re excited to present the inaugural issue of Discovery Immunology, the newest Open Access journal from the British Society for Immunology covering new discoveries in cellular and molecular immunology. 

Discovery Immunology is led by Professor Simon Milling, with the support of a team of globally-renowned experts from both academia and industry. The editorial team have been working hard over the past year to bring you a collection of high-quality articles from leading researchers, describing novel mechanisms controlling the immune response.

The first published content of the journal features five insightful reviews and one cutting-edge research article, covering key areas of interest in the field such as unconventional T cell signalling in cancer and the role of inflammasomes in cytokine storm syndromes.

We invite our members and the wider immunology community to take a look at the initial articles of our brand-new Open Access journal below.
