The the British Society for Immunology Congress will take place at The Brighton Centre, Brighton, UK on 4 - 7 December 2017. 

Plenaries will include:

  • Microbiota and the immune system - symbiosis or dysbiosis
  • Inflammation and immune regulation
  • Learning from immunodeficiencies and novel therapeutics in human disease


Our keynote lecturer is Professor Luke O'Neill from Trinity College Dublin.



Attendees will gain the following key learning outcomes from attending the event:

  1. To be able to demonstrate good knowledge and critical thinking on recent significant research and current thinking across the field of immunology, in particular the topics listed below: 
  • Antigen processing & adaptive immunity
  • Autophagy in the immune system
  • Battling it out: Regulatory T cells vs inflammation
  • Extracellular vesicles: The role of exosomes and other shed vesicles in the immune system
  • Identification of immune correlates of infection to underpin vaccine design
  • Immunometabolism
  • Inflammation in wound healing
  • Innate immunity in neurodegenerative diseases
  • Mucosal Immunity
  • Neutrophils in the inflammatory response
  • NK cells: Diversity and biology underpinning disease
  • Novel insights in PID and genetics
  • Potentiating cancer immunotherapy by targeting the microenvironment
  • Regulation of the immune response in support of hematopoietic progenitor cell and solid organ transplantation
  • Shaping inflammation through toll like receptors and lectin receptors
  • Single cell technologies - challenges & applications
  • T cell interactions in health and disease
  • Versatility of the B cell and antibody response


  1. To develop communication skills related to presenting their work (either as an oral or poster presentation) to an audience of peers
  2. To demonstrate good knowledge on how to successfully write and publish a scientific paper
  3. To demonstrate good knowledge on how to write a successful grant and funding applications
