The Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) will host its annual meeting virtually from 8-11 June 2021.

FOCIS is the meeting in translational immunology that will give you a competitive edge in your career. Stay ahead of the curve with leading clinicians and researchers delivering the latest breakthroughs across immune-mediated diseases.

Focusing on molecular pathways and their implications in human disease provides the unique opportunity for innovative thinking and apply ideas from the pathologies of other diseases to uncover novel solutions to challenges in the diseases you study.

Through the FOCIS Annual Meeting, researchers and clinicians share knowledge across traditional disease borders and identify commonalities between treatments and therapies that are life-changing for those affected with immune-mediated diseases.


Keynote speakers: Adrian Hill MD, University of Oxford, Arlene Sharpe, MD, PhD, Harvard Medical School, Tadatsu Taniguchi, PhD, University of Tokyo​, and Bruce Walker, MD, Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard
