ALTERNATIVE CAREER PATHS
Webinar Series for Early Career Researchers
Complement UK is introducing an online Webinar Series designed for early-career researchers to support their professional development needs and give graduates and researchers the chance to learn about alternative career paths.
We will hear talks and discussions from a variety of researchers working in different settings, including a variety of different roles within academia, contrasting roles in an industry setting, opportunities at the clinical interface, entrepreneurship and many other possibilities!
Navigating job opportunities and transitioning to different career paths can be difficult. In our dedicated webinar series, the panellists will talk about their career journey, tips for transitioning between different settings and what skills are particularly valuable to progress different careers in academia and beyond.
These online webinars are free of charge.
We will email you a link to join a day or two before each webinar.

EMCHD is to be held on August 25-29, 2022 at the same venue in Bern.
The meeting will provide the complement community with a great opportunity to share and discuss their clinical as well as laboratory results with colleagues and hear about new findings within our fields. This will be complemented by a teaching day in a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere in the heart of Switzerland.
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.
At this exciting time for the field, the 6th Complement-based Drug Development Summit returns to reunite large pharma, innovative biotechs and pioneering academics to explore the full range of next generation complement-targeted technologies, and help you maximize the clinical and commercial success of complement proteins as pan-disease targets!
This 3rd meeting of the Ab&Complement meeting series will focus attention on key advances in both fields with the aim at fostering discussions between antibody experts and complement experts. Some of the critical topics to be covered include antibody & complement functions, FcR and CR, Ab glycosylation and anti-inflammatory activity, Structure-function linkage, Novel technologies, complement and antibody therapies.
This meeting on Antibody & Complement will be a forum for leaders in the field and new investigators coming from academia, industry and research institutes to discuss where the field is going and what challenges lie ahead.
