FOCIS 2017 Features Dynamic, Cross-Disciplinary Program - Travel Awards Available

First held in 2001, the FOCIS Annual Meeting draws the best clinician scientists from around the world to participate in the scientific program, bringing together cutting-edge science from various disease fields related to clinical immunology.

The FOCIS approach to clinical immunology is unique, concentrating on breaking down clinical barriers between specialties and focusing on the shared pathologies of diseases and conditions. At FOCIS 2017, researchers and clinicians from over 40 disease and specialty-specific societies will unite to share knowledge across traditional disease borders, and identify commonalities between treatments and therapies that are life changing for those affected with immune-mediated diseases.

Why FOCIS 2017 is Right for You!

  • Get Ahead: See the latest developments across immunology disciplines to uncover novel solutions to the challenges facing the transplantation community.
  • Grow Your Knowledge: Three educational courses held before the meeting to fill your knowledge gaps, including Basic Immunology in Medicine, Computational Immunology, and the new Cancer Immunity and Immunotherapy course. Package registration rates are available!
  • Network with Colleagues: FOCIS 2017 is large enough to draw leaders from across immunology disciplines, but small enough to actually network with them
  • Great Location: The Hilton Downtown Chicago Hotel is minutes from many popular attractions, including the Shedd Aquarium, Millennium Park, Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile, and the Willis (Sears) Tower.
