Immunology Teaching Survey

To support our newly launched strategy, the BSI is conducting a survey to find out more about those who teach immunology within Higher Education Institutes. If you’re involved in teaching or supervising undergraduates or postgraduates we’d like to hear from you, whether you do it full-time or once a year. We want to learn about the different ways immunology is taught and how the BSI might support those who are teaching and their careers.

You can access the survey here and it should only take 5 minutes to complete.


To help mark our 60th anniversary, we are looking to collect a list of objects, or things, through which the story of immunology and its history can be told. In doing so, we hope to communicate how far the study and practice of immunology has come, from the days of pre-Jenner variolation, right up to the latest technologies at the cutting edge of immunological practice. But we need your help to come up with a good list.

At this stage, we want to hear all your suggestions for objects, or things, and why we should include them on our list. To find out more about the 'History of Immunology in 60 Objects' project, please click here
