The committee play an active role in the Immunology network and are involved with many activities:

  • Provide the monthly Early Careers Journal Club meetings
  • Attend meetings about how the network should be run
  • Provide feedback on events that the network organises
  • Volunteer to help with public engagement events
  • Help organise and Chair at the PhD and Postdoc Day
  • Suggest speakers for the "Immunology and Medicine" seminar series
  • Work with the coordinator of the Immunology network to ensure that the needs of our early career scientists are met.

We are lucky to have several very proactive head representatives

The new Capella building- CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Capella building will be finished in 2018.

Fibroblast

‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
