The main theme for ICI 2016 is “Immunotherapy: Harnessing the Power of the Immune System”. This is a timely motto, as we witness the emergence of amazing new immunotherapeutic strategies revolutionising the treatment of cancer, autoimmunity, allergy and immune deficiencies and transplant outcomes. Advances in discovery and development of vaccines for infectious diseases will remain a major focus of the Congress, as will the emerging fields of microbiome-host interactions, new innate cell subsets and immunoregulatory pathways. Progress in immunology is to a large extent driven by new technology, and advances in imaging from the molecular to whole-animal levels, single-cell analysis and deep sequencing will also be showcased in the program. Without forgetting that new advances in immunology are required to save and improve human lives in developing and in developed countries, and among disadvantaged communities such as indigenous populations.
