Upcoming Events and meetings
The 6th “Complement UK Symposium and Training Course” will take place on 30th – 31st March 2020, at The Hadyn Ellis Building, 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 best poster and oral presentation.
*Registration for this meeting in now OPEN*
CALL FOR POSTER PRESENTATION SUBMISSION
We invite submissions of posters by PhD students and Post-Docs on areas of emerging research relevant to complement. We particularly would like 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. Poster abstracts will be assessed by the organising committee, and those scoring highest will be invited for oral presentation during the training day. There will be prizes for best poster and oral presentation. A sponsor of best oral presentation award is .
The purpose of the 17th Innate Immunity is to bring together scientists from all over the world to discuss their latest findings on the various aspects of Innate Immunity.
The specific topics include: Evolution of the innate immune system, Host-microbe interactions, Interactions with adaptive immunity, Neuroimmunology, Pathophysiology-Inflammation, Structural biology, and Therapeutic applications.
This conference aims to bring together academic and industry scientists and clinical development experts who are focused on contemporary and emerging aspects of complement-mediated disease pathogenesis and the development of therapeutics that modulate this system in a beneficial manner. Topics discussed during the conference include: Molecular mechanisms and targets in complement-related diseases; Novel inhibitors & pipeline compounds; Haematological disorders; Organ & cell transplantation, I/R injury and chronic rejection; Kidney diseases; Neurological & ocular diseases; Acute and chronic inflammatory disorders; Infectious diseases & sepsis; Cancer; Informative complement biomarkers in therapeutic development; Novel and unexpected indications

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.
