The Council and Officers of the ICIS want to confirm that the Society is open to all scientists, from any country, whose research and interests involve the field of cytokine research. The ICIS is an anti-discriminatory, anti-oppressive and equality oriented organization. We strive to encourage world-wide scientific interactions and collaborations. Scientific research must be open to the world if we are to better human health and conquer disease.

Nominations will be solicited until June 1, 2017 for the following awards:
The ICIS 2017 Scientific Programme Committee and Organising Committee welcome all the delegates to submit abstracts of original contributions for oral and poster presentations at the 5th Annual Meeting of the International Cytokine and Interferon Society (ICIS 2017) co-organized by JSICR and MMCB. Please click here for more information and to submit an abstract.
The International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) is a non-profit organization 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. Bringing together scientists & clinicians across many different research disciplines, the ICIS is the premier organization promoting the field of cytokine biology, impacting all aspects of medicine, from cancer to autoimmune disease to neural development and function. A common ground where scientists interested in all aspect of cytokine biology can join and work together to better human health.
Become a part of the world-wide community of scientists devoted to research in the fields of cytokine, interferon, and chemokine biology by joining the International Cytokine and Interferon Society. Join others in this large field to exchange information and ideas, strengthen interdisciplinary ties, and build international collaborations. The Society serves as a network to facilitate research communication to ultimately translate discoveries to improve human health.
"Never, in the fields of Immunology and biology more broadly, had so much effort gone into fusing two Societies, for the good of our members and the future generations of scientists interested in interferons and cytokines."
"The Annual Meeting of the International Cytokine & Interferon Society is the preeminent conference for the field of innate immunity giving researchers an opportunity to present their findings to international colleagues to gain feedback and to foster future collaborations."
"Your upcoming meeting (Cytokines 2016) is where the world’s experts in IRF7 will be attending. Lauren attended the Cytokines 2015 meeting and it was invaluable for us in terms of identifying reagents and strategies to learn how cFLIPL inhibit IRF3 activation (our recent 2016 publication). I have no doubt that her attendance at the meeting this year will be equally as helpful."
Member 2017 invoices have been sent to all those ICIS members who's memberships were due to expire on December 31, 2016, through the Society's new online membership system. All Members have access to the new online membership directory and can access the nomination for for the 2017 ICIS Prestigious Awards, access the Cytokines 2017 Member Discount Code.
