FOCIS 2019: June 18-21, Boston.

FOCIS (Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies)   17-10-2018   http://www.focisnet.org/meetings/focis-2019/about/    

 

FOCIS is THE meeting in translational immunology!

FOCIS is a key forum where opinion leaders who are developing and applying novel concepts come together to chart the path to the next major breakthrough in disease therapy.

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.
