Upcoming Events and meetings
Following the theme of ESOT Congress 2021 “Interplay, Connect, Interface” the scientific programme of this edition will be based on 5 domains focusing on the most relevant topics for organ transplantation – topics that very often are transversal across disciplines and relevant to multiple organs.
Each session of the congress will be assigned to a certain domain. Such design will allow delegates to have a seamless journey through the programme.
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 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.

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.
