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.

COVID-19 Statement

With Cytokines 2020 taking place 1-4 November, our past and current efforts to understand the host response to viruses and other pathogens and the importance of IFN and cytokines in controlling infection and the immune response to vaccines could not be more important than it is now.
