Welcome to BPAIIG
The British Paediatric Allergy, Immunity and Infection Group (BPAIIG) is an affiliated speciality group of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) . Members of the BPAIIG are actively involved in the clinical care of children as well as in research and development of new methods of investigation and treatment of allergic, immune and infectious conditions. Research presentations by trainees are an important part of the Spring and Autumn meetings. Encouraging trainees to proceed in this field is a crucial function of the group. Establishment of the annual Oxford Infection and Immunity Summer Meeting in 2003 under the auspices of BPAIIG and the European Society of Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID), has complemented the BPAIIG rolling training programme. BPAIIG members are also involved with the specialist training of young doctors, via the Allergy, Immunology, and Infectious Diseases CSAC of the RCPCH.
