Cytokines 2019 Special Collection of Free Articles from Science Immunology

Welcome to the Special Collections page for Science Immunology. This edition is organized around the theme of “Cytokines” in connection with the Cytokines 2019 meeting in Vienna, Austria, held October 20-23, 2019. The collection features seven research articles and one review published in 2018 and 2019. These articles highlight the immunology of cytokines, cytokines receptors and cytokine signaling, which are major topics of interest within the scope of Science Immunology.

The first article below by Su et al. was published by the laboratory of Dr. Chen Dong at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. Dr. Dong will receive the 2019 William E. Paul Award for Excellence in Cytokine Research at this year’s ICIS meeting as recognition for his work on IL-17 family cytokines and T cell biology.

Ifor Williams, Editor of Science Immunology, will be attending this year’s meeting of the International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS). If you are interested in meeting with the Editor in Vienna, please reach out to him directly by email at He will be scheduling conversations with interested authors during the meeting in Vienna.

Please consider submitting your best work incorporating studies of cytokines to Science Immunology.
