President's Letter

A Message from the President – 1 December 2023

The results are in, and it’s official. The Athens ICIS meeting in October rocked! We have compiled answers from the survey of attendees, which confirmed our own feelings about the success of this conference. Kudos to Drs. George Pavlakis and Vangelis Andreakos for leading such a terrific event. The “proof of the pudding” is that over 95% of attendees plan to come to another Cytokines meeting based on their experience in Greece. [READ MORE]

Beyond Science Initiative (BSI) from 2013 to Present

The Beyond Sciences Initiative (BSI), a not-for-profit international organization, provides a platform for dialogue among young scholars around the globe.
Dr. Eleanor Fish founded BSI in 2013, specifically to create a network for young scholars that would develop lasting relationships throughout their professional careers, cognizant of the diversity and inequities around the globe. The first founding Chapter of BSI was in Toronto, affiliated with Trinity College, Toronto and the University of Toronto. To date BSI has representatives in over 100 countries. BSI’s mandate is to foster academic and personal growth while empowering young scientific leaders to make lasting and influential change within their local and global communities. This is accomplished by increasing cultural understanding among geographically separate communities, and by ensuring unrestricted access to scientific knowledge through mentorship, STEM workshops, a lecture repository and an annual international online conference.
