Meeting Report

Cytokines Regulating Neuroimmunometabolism Session Chairs: Lydia Lynch, Princeton University and Ai Ing Lim, Princeton University

International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) Symposium at AAI 2024 in Chicago:
Cytokines Regulating Neuroimmunometabolism
Session Chairs: Lydia Lynch, Princeton University and Ai Ing Lim, Princeton University

Description: The role of cytokines in non-classical immune-related physiology, focusing on how cytokines regulate neuroimmunology and metabolism, as well as the emerging field linking all 3 systems in ‚neuroimmunometabolism‘.

Speakers:
Lydia Lynch, Princeton University, USA, “Evolution of a cytokine neuroimmunometabolism pathway”
Ai Ing Lim, Princeton University, USA, “Cytokines regulating neuroimmunometabolism in maternal-offspring development”
Ruadhri Jackson, Harvard Medical School, USA, “An enteric neuroImmune circuit drives colorectal cancer”
Rami Bechara, University of Paris-Saclay, INSERM, France, “IL-17 as a regulator of metabolism in target cells”
Vishva Deep Dixit , Yale University, USA, “Adipose macrophages and regulation of neuroimmunometabolism”

IL-9: From Birth to Breath – ICIS-sponsored session at 2024 FOCIS focuses on the mysterious cytokine IL-9

Although IL-9 was first described in the late 1980s, its regulation and functions are still not well defined. Initially identified as a mast cell and T cell growth factor, IL-9 was subsequently reclassified as a type 2 cytokine after extensive data implicated it in atopic dermatitis, food allergy, and allergic asthma. Enthusiasm for the role of IL-9 in allergy peaked in the mid-2010s and then waned after two negative trials of IL-9-blocking antibodies in asthma. Over the subsequent decade, however, additional data emerged implicating IL-9 as a major player in autoimmunity and antitumor immunity.

To highlight this renaissance in IL-9 biology, the ICIS will be hosting a symposium at the 2024 FOCIS Annual Meeting. The symposium, entitled “IL-9: from birth to breath” will be held on June 18, 2024 – immediately before the FOCIS Opening Keynote Address. A series of short talks will cover the multifaceted roles of IL-9 across a broad range of human diseases, as well as basic mechanisms regulating IL-9 expression in various microenvironments.

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. www.beyondsciences.org
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.
