This Annual Meeting of the International Cytokine and Interferon Society provides an outstanding forum for investigators in basic science and clinical research to present their most recent findings on the role of cytokines in infectious diseases, inflammation, cancer, autoimmunity and novel therapeutic interventions. Scientific sessions include cutting edge basic and clinical presentations in plenary and concurrent symposia, as well as eminent keynote lectures, and are supported by up-to-date poster sessions. The Meeting also provides strong networking opportunities for scientists in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. The broad attendance and blend of senior scientists and physicians, as well as graduate students and post-doctoral fellows from around the world ensures a vibrant and exciting conference for all.
