Society news

The Royal Society and the Academy of Medical Sciences have announced their list of new Fellows for 2021.

We have announced the results of our 2021 committee nominations and elections.

This week (24 - 30 April 2021) marks World Immunisation Week. There has never been a more important time to recognise the huge role that vaccines play in keeping our communities safe. We have pooled a range of activities and resources related to immunisation and will be posting on social media throughout the week. Join with the official hashtag #ExploreVaccines!

Our new Equality, Diversity & Inclusion activity grants are designed to help organisations and individuals fund activities and events that promote diversity and inclusion across the immunology community and the wider biomedical sciences. 

The new edition of Immunology News is now online.

Nominations are now open for the Ita Askonas Award established by the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) and the European Journal of Immunology (EJI). This award recognises female group leaders in immunology who have run an independent laboratory for 4–8 years.

Elections for vacancies on our committees are now closed. Thank you to all BSI members who voted to select their representatives.

On Thursday 25 March 2021 we are holding a mass public engagement day on COVID-19 vaccinations. We are calling on BSI members to get involved in this critical and meaningful movement. Get ready for the day by registering to our webinar and finding your way to #ExploreVaccines.
