Industry Member - Scientists actively engaged as industry representatives in the field of cytokine and interferon research can renew their current membership (please click the button to Change Membership at the time of renewal) or join ICIS as Industry Members. This will help considerably, not just in the financial goal to keep academic, government and student/postdoc fees down, but more importantly, to better integrate our Industry Members within the society, to strengthen the links between industry, academia and government scientists and to advance the therapeutic use of and targeting of cytokines, their commercialization and the success of biological response modifiers.
