The International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS), is the world’s largest multidisciplinary organization advancing both fundamental and clinical research specific to the role of cytokines in health and disease. Our annual gathering of 700-1100 investigators from academia, government and industry is an important time for our community to come together with the goal to bring together scientists from diverse areas of biomedical research to discuss the latest breakthroughs and insights into how cytokines and interferons regulate immunity, inflammation, metabolism, and cancer.
Greater understanding of mechanisms of disease and novel concepts for therapy have and will continue to emerge from multidisciplinary gatherings where advances can be presented and discussed by established and trainee scientists. Many of the major advances in cytokine biology were first reported at this annual conference, and we very much look forward to continuing this strong tradition.
It is our hope that attendees will gain a deeper understanding of how cytokines network together to maintain health and gain an appreciation for the many potential strategies for targeting the network to create better drugs. The meeting will provide an outstanding forum for investigators in basic science and clinical research to present their most recent findings on the role of cytokines (including interferons, chemokines, and various pro-inflammatory/anti-inflammatory factors) in infection, cancer, allergy and autoimmunity, as well as in various other inflammatory and immune diseases. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for updates on the development of novel therapeutic interventions in these fields and help spur international collaborations among the meeting participants.
Cytokines 2021's Custom Virtual Meeting platform brings you an enriched experience with both live and on demand streaming, live commentary, online & video chats and virtual discussion & networking.
