Immunology News - September 2020

In the autumn issue of Immunology News, we look back at how we have been supporting our members and feeding into public discussion around COVID-19, and we take a look forward at our role in the UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium.

In this issue, we hear from members from the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology on the gendered impacts of COVID-19 and how we can preserve diversity in academia. We also hear from Professor John Hammond and other experts about the UK Immunological Toolbox, a community-driven initiative to facilitate veterinary vaccinology and immunology research.

We’re proud to present Immunotherapy Advances, our first fully Open Access journal, with an interview of Editor-in-Chief Professor Tim Elliott. Additionally, the BSI South Wales Immunology Group showcase their activities and how they have adapted to the new virtual reality.
