2015 Summer School in Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases
In less than a month, 34 selected fellows will engage in an intensive course with 10 of the top faculty in immunology at the PID Summer School. The program will be held from October 15-18 at the Thompson Hotel in Miami Beach. New this year, 4 immunologists who have already completed their fellowship will have the opportunity to participate as observers at the Summer School. CIS would like to thank the support of Baxalta, CSL Behring, Grifols and Horizon Pharma in making the Summer School possible.

2016 Membership renewal
Membership renewal notices for 2016 will be coming out in October. As always, we encourage you to renew early and avoid the rush!

Submit your articles to JoCI
The Journal of Clinical Immunology is the official journal of CIS. It's a great journal, but we need your help to make it even better. The CIS Council encourages CIS members submit their work to JoCI to make our official journal the strongest it can be.
