BSI Communicating Immunology Grant

Iris Mair, David Taggart, Julia Dorin and Donald Davidson are delighted to have been awarded a ‘Communicating Immunology’ grant from the British Society for Immunology to develop new Science Festival activities with the theme of ‘Denny and the T team fight cancer’.

New outreach activities will be developed and delivered within workshops at Science Festivals and at schools. Children will follow Denny the Dendritic cell through animated videos and lively hands-on activities, to gain a basic understanding of the immune system and learn how fascinating and enjoyable immunology can be.

These newly designed activities will use our pre-existing immunology cell characters, but centre around Cancer Immunology and help explain how the cells in our body can recognise and eliminate both infections and cancer cells.
