A Hybrid Experience: In-person and Online Presentations & Sessions

This meeting annually attracts 700-1,100 of the world’s leading immunology experts and covers both fundamental and clinical research specific to the role of cytokines in health and disease. Many of the major advances in cytokine biology were first reported at this annual conference, and we very much look forward to continuing this strong tradition this October at the Cardiff City Hall in Cardiff, Wales.

Cytokines 2021 will combine the physical event at the Cardiff City Hall in the Centre of Cardiff, with the LabRoots Virtual Meeting platform for a unique experience bringing both the in-person and virtual community together. Online presentations will be intertwined with physical presentations and sessions including virtual interactions, live commentary, online chat & video chats, webcast video presentation and discussion. 

I very much hope to see you all in Cardiff next year, and I hope you and your families are healthy and safe in these challenging times.

Best regards,
