The role of and effect of cytokines in every aspect of human health will continue to be identified and characterized and the use of cytokines themselves or antibodies to cytokines will become even more important tools in the arsenal of clinicians. Thus, the importance of the ICIS as a focal point for cytokine research will only continue to grow.
The ICIS releases the list of winning candidates from the 2017 election ballot. The newly elected officers, Council and Nominating Committee members will assume their roles in January, 2018 except for Kate Fitzgerald, President-Elect, who will serve first on the ICIS Executive Committee following the 2017 Annual Meeting in Kanazawa, fully assuming the Presidency in October 2019 for a two-year term.
2017 - 2019 President-Elect: Kate Fitzgerald
2018 - 2020 Treasurer: Cem Gabay
2018 - 2020 Secretary: John W. Schoggins
2018 - 2020 Council Members: David Artis & Hiroki Yoshida
2018 - 2020 Nominating Committee Members: Sonja Marie Best & Jean-Laurent Casanova

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.
