A special message from the British Society for Immunology
In the wake of the U.K.'s official withdrawal from the European Union, EFIS has has been asked to share with its Members the following message from British Society for Immunology:
As the British Society for Immunology we wanted to reach out to you given the departure of the UK from the EU. It hopefully goes without saying that the desire to leave the EU is not something that all Brits share and for us it is a sad day and end of a wonderful era. However we want to emphasise that it is now even more important than ever for us, the UK community of immunologists, to keep our doors open and maintain our relationship with all of you. For us to make significant advances in science for the benefit of human and animal health we need to continue to work together and the BSI will do all we can to enable that, via developing partnerships with all of you and through advocacy to ensure the best result for European science and immunology. We very much value the links with you, our colleagues and friends across Europe, and we look forward to our relationships going from strength to strength.
