Infection and Immunity Society

The subjects of Immunology and Infectious Diseases are often seen as very daunting by students throughout the sciences, and across the world! However, this need not be the case, as both subjects are fortunate enough to include some of the greatest wonders and mysteries of the biological world. The nature of this field is so diverse that students across the medical sciences interested in virtually any clinical or academic specialty will benefit greatly by having an understanding of these subjects, throughout their entire career.

 

We at the KCL Society of Immunology and Infectious Diseases believe that students simply need to be exposed to these subjects at a good pace, with engaging and enjoyable material presented by passionate teachers. Through this, students will at very least overcome their phobia towards these subjects, and ideally develop a strong appreciation of it; some may even (hopefully) consider including it in their career pathway!

 

The KCL Society of Immunology and Infectious Diseases has three main objectives:

 

  1. Increase the appreciation and awareness of immunology and infectious diseases,
  2. Provide students with opportunities to help consider a career in academic and/or clinical immunology and infectious diseases
  3. To boost the academic profile of students at KCL

 

Some of the ways we aim to meet these objectives are by providing:

 

  1. Talks and advice about making the most of your time academically at KCL, and the vastness of the opportunities and resources available to you In the UK (and potentially beyond). A particular emphasis will be made towards getting involved with research
  2. Revision sessions and materials to help you tackle these subjects with a strong advantage
  3. Opportunities to attend relevant conferences and seminars
  4. Journal clubs
  5. Engaging talks from enthusiastic teachers, on a range of interesting and clinically relevant topics
  6. Of course, everyone loves to have some fun with like-minded individuals, so we’ll also be arranging some relaxing social events :)
