FOCIS 2022 Member Society Symposium                                                                                               

Human Cytokine Deficiencies and Cytokinopathies 
Presented by The International Cytokine & Interferon Society

Symposium Chair(s): Dusan Bogunovic, – Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Kate Jeffrey, Moderna/Harvard University

The International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS), embodies over 1,000 scientists and clinicians devoted to research in the fields of cytokine, interferon biology. We are the premier organization and a common ground where scientists interested in all aspect of cytokine biology work together to better human health. Here we are featuring newest research devoted to human cytokine deficiencies and cytokanopathies alike, both of which impact human health, provide insight into fundamental biological principles, and offer targets for therapy of rare and common diseases.
