Immunotherapy Advances ECR Editorial Board

As an official journal of the British Society for Immunology, Immunotherapy Advances aims to support the development of the next generation of immunologists. With this in mind, Immunotherapy Advances has developed a dedicated Editorial Board specifically for early career researchers (ECRs). The ECR Board members will join the editorial team of our brand new Open Access journal, develop their skills as peer reviewers, learn more about the editorial process and contribute to the growth and development of the journal.

The ECR Board members will work closely with more senior members of the Editorial Board to learn how to effectively review for a journal, as well as receiving experience in other Editorial Board activities. We hope that the ECR Board members will provide a fresh perspective on Immunotherapy Advances, supporting the journal's growth and offering ideas and opinions on future developments.

After calling for applications from ambitious and talented ECRs, we are delighted to announce the twelve new ECR Editorial Board members. Thank you to everyone who submitted an application.
