About the ICS

Established in 1988, The International Cytokine Society (ICS) consisted of persons who had research, clinical or educational experience in the field of cytokines or in an allied discipline. The main purposes of the Society was to promote original research in the fields of cytokines, growth factors and receptors and to facilitate communication and interaction between scientists aimed at the multidisciplinary integration of current basic and clinical knowledge and concepts in the study of cytokines. After many years of holding joint meetings with the International Society for Interferon and Cytokine Research (ISICR), the ICS merged with the ISICR to become the International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) in 2013.
