For World Primary Immunodeficiency Week 2018, the BSI have collected a range of resources focusing on primary immundeficiencies. 

For International Day of Immunology 2018, the BSI has teamed up with the Francis Crick Institute and Nature Research to deliver a panel discussion hosted by top immunologists on the relationship between the immune system of the gut and the commensal bacteria it is home to.

Here, we outline the progress that has been made so far in terms of securing the best outcome for science and technology, and in particular immunology.
