60 YEARS OF THE BRITISH SOCIETY FOR IMMUNOLOGY

last modified Oct 11, 2016 11:52 AM
The British Society for Immunology celebrates 60 years on Tuesday 11 October. We are proud to have supported immunology and immunologists during this time and we hope as many of you as possible are able to join us in celebrating this important milestone.

To commemorate our anniversary, we have published a new report '60 years of immunology' to celebrate the breadth and depth of immunological research in this country and beyond.  The report discusses key areas where immunology has and will have a significant impact on our understanding of human and animal biology, our ability to treat and even cure common diseases and our capacity to deal with emerging threats on a global scale. We feel that now, more than ever, it's important that we are able to engage with Government, decision makers and funders to make the case for just how important immunological research is to the life sciences, patient care and the economy and we hope that this report will help us achieve this.  Download the full report here

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 2019.

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.
