Joint Virtual Issues

The latest joint Virtual Issues from both Clinical & Experimental Immunology and Immunology

Nobel Prize 2018: Cancer Immunotherapy Collection
T lymphocytes attacking cancer cell

The BSI’s two official journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, are proud to have published many papers in cancer immunotherapy, many of which focus on the role of CTLA-4 and PD-1 in immunotherapies. These include a review authored by James Allison on co‐stimulatory agonists and co‐inhibitory antagonists and a paper by Tasuku Honjo addressing the regulation of B‐1 cell activation and its autoantibody production by Lyn kinase‐regulated signallings.

Microbiome: A Joint Virtual Issue from the BSI and the Microbiology Society
Gut microbe

In celebration of World Microbiome Day on the 27th June, the British Society for Immunology and the Microbiology Society and have collaborated to curate a freely available collection of microbiome research and review articles from the Societies' journals.

Inflammasomes and Inflammatory Disease
Inflammasomes and Inflammatory Disease

To coincide with BSI Congress 2017, this virtual issue combined articles from both the BSI’s journals,Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, with a focus on Inflammasomes and Inflammatory Disease, a topic inspired by the keynote session presented by one of the most eminent scientists working in the field of innate immunity, Luke O'Neill FRS.


Here are the latest free Virtual Issues from Immunology.


Editors’ Choice Virtual Issue, by Danny Altmann
Imm Eds Choice VI

A key part of our role as editors is to optimize the ability of the journal to act as a forum that can focus or synthesize current movements in our field. We believe this collection offers some fine examples of that synthesis.

Drivers and Regulatiors of adaptive immunity – new concepts
Immunology adaptive immunity VI

This collection demonstrates new directions in our understanding of the shaping of adaptive immunity.

Specialised innate and adaptive immune subsets, compartments and the microbiota in health and disease
MAIT cells in immune mediated diseases

This collection includes articles which shed light on different aspects of tissue-specific immune responses to infection and those involved in inflammation in mucosal, adipose and lymphoid tissues. 

The role of microRNAs in immune cell function, health and disease
Biogenesis of microRNAs

The key reviews and papers included in this collection examine the specific roles of miRNAs within the immune system, whilst also investigating their potential as biomarkers of disease.

Clinical & Experimental Immunology

Collection of articles describing some of what is known about the underlying immunological and biological processes involved in immune-aging.

Type 1 diabetes: insights into pathophysiology, treatments and interventions
Effects of IL-21 on Type-1 diabetes

This collection examines the mechanisms underlying the development of type 1 diabetes and different treatment strategies under investigation, in both humans and mouse models.

From bench to clinic – highlights in translational immunology research
CEI VI translational immunology research

This collection of reviews and research papers from Clinical & Experimental Immunology outlines some of the important areas in translational immunology research in the diagnosis and treatment of a number of diseases.
