Complement UK meeting in Cardiff - POSTPONED

After careful monitoring of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our 6th Complement UK meeting, due to take place in Cardiff on 30-31 March.

This is not a decision we have come to lightly. Our decision making has been informed by detailed risk assessment, but we sought to balance our commitment to delivering a conference that we know provides real value and impact, with our deep and genuine concern for the health and wellbeing of all our conference attendees. We do not believe it would be right or responsible to proceed with holding the conference in the light of recent developments; equally we are mindful of our responsibility to support efforts to delay the spread of COVID19 across the UK.

We understand that this decision will have implications for many of you and we ask for your patience and understanding while our team works through the next steps with the focus on rescheduling the meeting to a later date.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.


The 6th “Complement UK Symposium and Training Course” will take place on 30th – 31st March 2020, at Cardiff University.

The first day is a teaching day focused on trainees, students, junior postdocs and other newcomers to the field. There will be introductory lectures on complement, followed by a choice of tutorials covering many aspects of basic complement biology and biochemistry, and the role of complement in disease. Following the tutorials, there will be a guest lecture.

The symposium on the second day will be focused on a specific research theme, this year complement in diagnostics and therapeutics. There will be prizes for the best poster and oral presentation.

Call for Poster Abstract - CLOSED

We invite submissions of abstracts for the training day at the 6th Complement UK Symposium and Training Course, 30th &­ 31st March 2020.

We urge 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 oral presentation. There will be prizes for best poster and oral presentation.

An ABSTRACT SUBMISSION FORM [download here] should be completed and returned to anna.taliadoros@kcl.ac.uk.
by 2nd February 2020.
