Please renew 2021 Membership Dues or join the International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS)!

The ICIS is the premier organization, with 1,047 members world-wide promoting the field of cytokine biology, bringing together scientists across many different research disciplines, impacting all aspects of medicine and leading to new treatments in autoimmune diseases, cancer, infectious diseases and inflammation. 

Student/Postdoc membership (now nearly 50% of our members are trainees), a three year membership is $60. This will save you $150 in registration fees over the next 3 years ( We plan to offer Virtual Access in sync with the live events at least through 2022, with lower registration fees for those who wish to participate virtually. ICIS Young Investigator Awards nomination/application deadline is 15 May, 2021. ICIS Student/Postdoc membership in the premier organization promoting the field of cytokine biology is an important career step to open doors in academia, industry or government.

The Academic/Government membership fees for 2021 are as follows:
Membership Dues       One Year       Two Year      Three Year
Academic/Government      $75.00             $ 135.00        $200.00

Academic/Government members submitting abstracts to the Cytokines 2021 Hybrid Meeting in Cardiff are also eligible to apply for Cytokines 2021 Travel/Abstract Awards with funding available to award 60 – 70 researchers travel awards, (or abstract awards for Virtual Meeting registration) based on peer review of their submitted abstracts — a members only benefit. Members are also eligible for prestigious senior, mid-career, early-career and young investigator awards:

Non academic/government scientists actively engaged in the field of cytokine and interferon research can renew their current membership as Industry Members, with the goal to strengthen the links between industry, academia and government scientists and to advance the therapeutic use of and targeting of cytokines, their commercialization and the success of biological response modifiers. Industry Members also benefit from a $250 discount on Annual Meeting registration fees.

Membership Dues       One Year       Two Year      Three Year
Industry                             $250.00             $450.00         $650.00

We look forward to your continued and active participation as the role of and effect of cytokines in every aspect of human health continue to be identified and characterized and the use of cytokines themselves or antibodies to cytokines 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.
