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.
*Registration for this meeting will open in mid October 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.
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.
