9th Joint Meeting of the ICS/ ISICR
Palazzo dei Congressi, from 09 October 2011 to 12 October 2011
9th Joint Meeting of the International Cytokine Society (ICS) and the International Society for Interferon and Cytokine Research (ISICR)
Il tema del congresso “Cytokines and Interferons: from the bench to the bedside”.
The overall theme for this Conference is “Cytokines and Interferons: from the bench to the bedside”.
We are excited about the prospect of hosting up to 1000 international and local participants at this Joint Meeting in Florence. An outstanding international schedule consisting of Plenary Sessions, Symposia, Workshops, and Poster Sessions has been arranged to bring together leading research workers in cytokine biology, cancer, immunology, virology and infectious diseases in a forum that emphasizes the intersection of these expanding fields.
The topics at this conference will cover a full spectrum from basic science to clinical, biotechnological and pharmaceutical research. Research in this area of immunology has been directly responsible for the development of growth factors and their application in hematology, for new treatments in oncology, for a new generation of anti-inflammatory drugs, and for treatments for multiple sclerosis, hepatitis and viral syndromes.
