The International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) is the scientific family for over 1,250 scientists and physicians devoted to research in the fields of cytokine, interferon and chemokine cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry and the clinical use of these biological response modifiers. A common ground where scientists interested in all aspect of cytokine biology can join and work together to better human health.
Its annual meeting convenes the world’s experts on viruses and anti-viral responses, on the immune system and its functions in health and disease, impacting all aspects of medicine and leading to new treatments in autoimmune diseases, cancer, infectious diseases and inflammation.
It is a major goal of the ICIS to facilitate interactions between young investigators and trainees with established researchers in the interferon and cytokine field. Outstanding junior investigators, postdoctoral researchers, and graduate/medical students are encouraged to participate in the Annual Scientific meeting through the presentation of prestigious travel awards dedicated to young researchers.
