Upcoming Events and meetings
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.
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.
- Homeotic Complement
- Inflammatory Complement
- Complement Receptors and Intracellular Complement
- Association of Complement and Complement Activation Products in Human Diseases
- New Developments of Complement in Health and Disease
- Translational Complement
- Complement Diagnostics and Standardization
- Complement Therapeutics on the Way to the Clinics
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.
Next EMCHD is postponed to 2022 – Tentative plan is to hold conference on August 25-29, 2022 at the same venue in Bern.
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.
