The 2017 BSP Autumn Symposium was held on Thursday 28th September at the Linnean Society, Burlington House, London. BSP student representative Tom Pennance blogs about the event here. Another blog was published on the Infectious Disease Hub here. Catch up with all that you missed by reading the blogs! As Tom writes: "all living species are involved in parasitism, so our continued inquisitive nature into everything parasite-related is warranted, and something that Carl Linnaeus would certainly be proud of."
