‘Collaborative Covid Immunology: A UK-CIC Conference’ took place on Wednesday 28 April and Thursday 29 April 2021.
This event was the UK Coronavirus Immunology Consortium’s flagship virtual scientific conference, and brought consortium collaborators together with members of the wider immunology community to discuss the latest in COVID-19 immunology research.
More than 450 participants joined us online for this unique opportunity. The programme included sessions on primary and protective immunity, immunopathology, cross-reactive coronavirus immunity, and immune evasion. Attendees were also able to connect in focused chat room discussions, as well as virtual posters and speed-networking.
The UK-CIC conference was funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and supported by the British Society for Immunology.
