Save the Date! On November 1-4, 2020, the International Cytokine and Interferon Society (ICIS) will be hosting its 8th annual meeting Cytokines 2020: Structure-Function and Systems Biology of Cytokines

Submitted by galeadmin on Thu, 12/12/2019 - 10:02


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.

The pandemic  underscores the importance of this meeting and our research to understand cytokine and interferon biology in human health and disease. Therefore we highly encourage you to prepare and collaborate with colleagues for Cytokines 2020 in this virtual setting.

Updates will be available on, through ICIS social media and email. Extended deadlines for abstract submission, registration, and award applications can be accessed at

We would like to invite you to take part of this important conference.

This meeting will explore the application of molecular and systems biology approaches to understand the mechanisms of cytokine functions in the broad areas of signal transduction, gene expression, and systems responses in the context of health and disease. Research presented at this meeting has practical application to a wide range of clinical areas: cancer, infectious disease, inflammation, autoimmune disease, metabolism, microbiome health, and development.  The meeting will feature cutting edge and basic and clinical presentations, Keynote Lectures from four world leaders in cytokine and interferon research, 2 timely poster sessions, and a total of 55 presentations by invited speakers as well as oral abstract presentations. Attendees from all career stages will participate in 4 ground-breaking Plenary and 14 highly relevant scientific sessions.
