Immunology News - September 2021

In the autumn issue of Immunology News, we showcase some of the important initiatives we have been working on to further support our members and the immunology community, such as new research funding to tackle autoimmune diseases collaboratively and the significant expansion of our career development offering.

This issue features the much-anticipated BSI Congress 2021, as well as an article from BSI members Dr Thomas Wilkinson, Professor Rob Nibbs and Dr Nigel Francis discussing remote teaching and the future of immunology education.

We also look back at the 12 months of achievements and collaboration from the UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium and explore the value of veterinary vaccines, presented in our recent policy report created with the International Veterinary Vaccinology Network.
