Novel Mechanisms, Tools, and Therapies in NEUROINFLAMMATION

8-9 September 2022 | King's College London | London

Complement UK in partnership with will hold the above course on the 8th & 9th September 2022 at King’s College London.

The course is aimed at researchers and clinicians interested in neuro-immune interactions and neuroinflammation. We particularly welcome the active participation of early career researchers and have included several slots in our programme for short talks, based on abstract submissions.

The first day will be focused on Novel mechanistic understanding of neuro-immune interactions and the second day will address Neuro-immune interactions in the clinic and How to target neuro-immune interactions.

Registration deadline:                   25th August 2022

Draft programme

Call for Abstract Submissions - Deadline 4 July 2022

We invite submissions of abstract proposals for the Novel mechanisms, tools, and therapies in NEUROINFLAMMATION course on 8 – 9 September 2022 at King’s College London.

We would like to ask Principal Investigators to encourage their students and post-docs to present posters, as it affords an excellent opportunity for initiating & furthering collaborations, and for your team to discuss their work with others in the field in a friendly and informal environment.

Poster abstracts will be scored by the organising committee, and those scoring highest will be invited for a short oral presentation. There will be prizes for best poster and oral presentation.

Once the abstract is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for and present at the conference.

An abstract submission form should be returned to anna.taliadoros@kcl.ac.uk  by 4th July 2022 at the latest.
