Young Immunologists Forum 2014: Deadline Extended to 30 April 

You now have a little longer to apply for this excellent meeting on 19 - 21 June 2014. Also, to reflect the fact that many postdocs have limited access to funds we are reducing the attendance cost to just £50 for all attendees. This heavily subsidised rate reflects the BSI's determination to support early career researchers. This event offers an unrivalled opportunity for early career researchers to acquire and share expertise about career development, including excellent presentations from Eleanor Riley (LSHTM), Doreen Cantrell (University of Dundee) and Jim Johnston (Amgen).
