Warren J. Leonard is awarded the 2020 Milstein Award for Excellence in Interferon & Cytokine Research

Warren J. Leonard is a physician-scientist whose contributions in the area of cytokines began in the early 1980’s when he cloned the IL-2 receptor α chain, and represent the “pinnacle of scientific achievement in interferon and cytokine research”. He has made outstanding contributions in both basic science and translational areas, with many of his innovative contributions notable for the potential for clinical application. His work continues to explore the role of cytokines in immune dysregulation.

Sarah Gaffen and Vijay Kuchroo are jointly recognized for the 2020 ICIS-BioLegend William E. Paul Award for their combined contributions deciphering the role of a key cytokine IL-17 in health and disease

Sarah Gaffen is a world leader in the field of IL-17 biology and function and has become virtually synonymous with this cytokine within the broad scientific community. Vijay K. Kuchroo is recognized for his impact on many of the fundamental discoveries related to cytokine research over the past decade. In particular, he was instrumental in defining the IL-17 producing Th17 cells and their role in autoimmunity and how their modulation effects immune function and tissue inflammation.

The conference will explore and discuss various aspects of the non-specific effects of
vaccines, including their impact on neonates and infants, how generalisable and durable
these effects are, the implications for geriatric and veterinary medicine, and why non-specific effects
should differ between sexes and across the lifespan.
