We will be releasing more information regarding the event over the coming weeks.


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


There will be prizes for best poster and oral presentation. A sponsor of best oral presentation award is  .

Antibodies and Complement conference 2021

This 3rd conference on Antibodies & Complement 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 (novel) functions
  • human antibody repertoires
  • complement structure and subcellular localization
  • novel technologies
  • complement and antibody therapies

After the success of the two first editions (EMBO workshop June 2018 & May 2019), this third edition of conference on Antibodies & Complement should again 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.

Complement-related kidney diseases: classification, genetics, and treatment

The Frontiers Meeting 2021 is an International Society of Nephrology (ISN) event hosted by the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research.

The 2021 Frontiers Meeting will focus on the two prototypical complement-mediated kidney diseases: atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) and C3 Glomerulopathies /Membranoproliferative Glomerulonephritis (C3G/MPGN), both very rare and severe diseases. aHUS is an ultra-rare disease with an estimated prevalence of 1/100,000, while primary C3G/MPGN has an estimated prevalence of 16/100,000.
