Upcoming Events and meetings
Annual meetings of Complement UK serve two key purposes: to deliver a strong training element; and to foster collaborative research in specified areas.
This year’s event will focus on Complement Diagnostics and Therapeutics.
The first day is a teaching day focused on trainees, students and junior Post Docs. 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. The symposium on the second day will expand on a specific research theme, which this year is the role of complement in diagnostics and therapeutics.
Following the tutorials, there will be a guest talk by Professor Sir Keith Peters.
*Registration for this meeting will open in September 2019*
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 international meeting will cover state of the art lectures on complement in health and disease and emphasizes will be given on the translational aspects. Renowned international speakers will cover exciting and recent newest developments of complement therapeutics.
