Call for Special Issue Papers: Interferon-Lambda (Type-3 Interferon)

The Journal of Interferon & Cytokine Research (JICR) provides authoritative peer-reviewed research, analysis, and commentary on the function of interferons (IFNs), immune cytokines, chemokines, and their gene and cell targets in mediating effector actions. This forthcoming special issue will focus on topics presented during the recent “Interferon Lambda 2022” satellite meeting that was held in September 2022 in Hawaii. The purpose of this meeting was to promote research on the IFN-λs (type-3 IFNs) by enhancing interdisciplinary communication and encouraging new scientific collaborations. The meeting co-organizer, Ludmila Prokunina-Olsson, will serve as the guest editor for this special JICR issue.
