Join us Thursday, May 11 to Monday, May 15 in Washington, DC, for the leading annual all-immunology event worldwide!

  • Explore the latest developments in your field.
  • Attend lectures by the world’s most prominent scientists.
  • Speak with poster authors presenting their cutting-edge data.
  • Network with colleagues from around the world.

There has never been a more important time for the immunology community to gather and share the leading science for which our meetings and members are known!

ICS is pleased to announce we will host a guest symposium at the upcoming AAI meeting.

In 2015, Andrea Tenner established the ICS Guest Symposium at the annual conference of the American Association of Immunologists.  Viviana Ferreira has continued this tradition for the past 5 years.  This Symposium is now in its 8th year, and we have assembled an exciting session for the upcoming AAI congress in Washington, DC, on May 11 – 15, 2023:
