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.

Continuing Medical Education (CME) *New for 2016*
In the past, FOCIS has made it possible for meeting participants to obtain CME credit for attending the annual meeting. In order to enable all those involved in the research and treatment of immune-mediated diseases to participate in the exchange of ideas that contribute to the forward motion of the field, FOCIS will not offer CME credit for FOCIS 2016. Certificates of attendance will be available upon request.
