Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies

Society Profile

FOCIS, the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies, is an international organization that is unifying the field of translational immunology. Our mission is to apply the science of immunology to improve human health through interdisciplinary research, education, communication, and collaboration.

What makes FOCIS truly unique is our interdisciplinary approach to immunology. Translational researchers play a key role in breaking down the silos that currently limit bench to bedside to bench methodology.

FOCIS organizes each year the FOCIS Annual Meeting, the premier meeting and networking event dedicated to translational immunology. The event is an incubator for developing scientists and clinicians to coalesce with relevant biotech and pharmaceutical industries to improve the field of translational research throughout medicine. The FOCIS Annual Meeting program reflects current major issues and cutting-edge research while providing the same high-quality, multidisciplinary content all presented by leading clinicians and researchers in the field. Nearly 1,000 clinicians, researchers, and trainees from across the nation and around the world attend.

We welcome clinicians, researchers, industry experts, trainees, and students to join our community. Individuals affiliated with a FOCIS Member Society may join FOCIS at a reduced rate. Group memberships are also available.

FOCIS’ portfolio of education programs is offered in both live and virtual formats. Members receive reduced rates for live programs and free access to the online portfolio of lectures.

FOCIS created the FOCIS Center of Excellence (FCE) network which aims to accelerate multidisciplinary scientific and clinical innovation and education, worldwide. Network opportunities include continuing education opportunities for researchers and clinicians and travel support opportunities for their trainees.
