Join Us! A Family of Cytokine Biologists
ICIS Members normally receive a $100 discount ($50 for student/postdoc members; $250 for Industry members) to register for the Annual Meetings. After careful consideration the ICIS and Seattle 2020 meeting leadership have decided to make Cytokines 2020 an all virtual meeting. This difficult decision is based upon the uncertainty of SARS-CoV-2 exposure outcome from holding an in-person gathering in Seattle.
ICIS Academic/Government and Student/Postdoc Members registration fees for the Virtual Meeting will be FREE by 1 July, 2020. ICIS Industry Members save $300 on Industry Registration fees.
