Immunologists gain top recognition

We’re delighted to see immunology well represented in recent award rounds, with BSI members playing a prominent role.  The Royal Society recently announced their 2016 Fellowship list, which recognises the most eminent scientists from or living and working in the UK.  Past BSI President Professor Adrian Hayday from King’s College London has been elected as a Fellow in recognition of his work employing molecular biology approaches to understand how lymphocytes function within tissues and how this might contribute to human health and disease.
     
Similarly, the Academy of Medical Sciences announced their new list of Fellows last week and the following BSI members are recognised: Professor Arne Akbar, University College London; Professor Judith Allen, University of Manchester; Professor Gordon Brown,  University of Aberdeen; Professor Graham Lord, King's College London; Professor Mala Maini,  Viral Immunology, University College London; Professor Peter Parham, Stanford University. Our congratulations to all of you!

Immunology Teaching Survey

Knowledge 
To support our newly launched strategy, the BSI is conducting a survey to find out more about those who teach immunology within Higher Education Institutes. If you’re involved in teaching or supervising undergraduates or postgraduates we’d like to hear from you, whether you do it full-time or once a year. We want to learn about the different ways immunology is taught and how the BSI might support those who are teaching and their careers.


You can access the survey here and it should only take 5 minutes to complete.



A HISTORY OF IMMUNOLOGY IN 60 OBJECTS

To help mark our 60th anniversary, we are looking to collect a list of objects, or things, through which the story of immunology and its history can be told. In doing so, we hope to communicate how far the study and practice of immunology has come, from the days of pre-Jenner variolation, right up to the latest technologies at the cutting edge of immunological practice. But we need your help to come up with a good list.

At this stage, we want to hear all your suggestions for objects, or things, and why we should include them on our list. To find out more about the 'History of Immunology in 60 Objects' project, please click here

BSI's new five-year strategy

We are pleased to launch the new five-year strategy for the BSI, which has been produced in collaboration between our Trustees and staff with input from the membership survey we carried out last year.
