Launch of the Canadian Immunology and Biologics Research Network (CIBRN)

Canadian Immunology and Biologics Research Network launches this week, supporting open scientific discussion around immunology and biologics research.

We’re delighted to announce the launch of a new initiative called the Canadian Immunology and Biologics Research Network (CIBRN).

CIBRN is conceived as a learning community fostering open scientific discussions through online forums, webinars and MicroLearning objects. The intent is for members with an interest in Immunology and Biologics research to sustain an ongoing connection and, anchored in scientific discovery & expert insight, share clinical findings and professional perspectives to advance understanding in this field. In addition, we see this community as a platform for peer-to-peer discussions post-NIBRT to ensure the highest level of care for patients in Canada.

LegitiMed will be managing this community residing on Sosido ( Learning will be structured and unstructured with specific objectives related to current & imminent topics in this field, for example, the biosimilar medical switch debate and clinical implications.

Some details about your participation:

  • Sosido will set up your account, monitor your publications, and alert you when a new publication you’ve authored will be featured in the CIBRN community;
  • You will receive a weekly email digest with a summary of all new research from members of the CIBRN community, as well as abstracts from key immunology journals;
  • You will also have access to a private online discussion forum if you wish to reach out to others in the CIBRN community to ask or answer questions;
  • We understand that your level of participation will be determined by your level of interest. As such, if you find that the network is not useful to you or you do not want your research to be featured, you can unsubscribe at any time.

We are interested in a full exchange of ideas around this subject and welcome others who would be interested in participating in CIBRN. To participate, please contact

We thank AbbVie Canada for their financial support of this initiative.
