Membership of Complement UK offers many advantages and opportunities to scientists, clinicians, Pre- and Post-Doctoral researchers and industry interested in complement and related disorders. These include:

a) Participation in annual conferences & training courses

The purpose of these meetings is to provide an overview of the current level of expertise within the UK and foster research collaboration. A specially tailored training programme is devoted to the needs of trainees, who include newcomers to complement. It consists of a series of lectures/tutorials on key areas of basic and applied fields of research.

b) Attendance at closed research and progress meetings

These meetings provide an opportunity, unique in the UK, to share information on ongoing research and unpublished data with the understanding that they are of confidential nature and shall not be used or disclosed without permission of the presenter.

c) To participate in a studentships programme

Complement UK gives the opportunity to participate in a programme of industry-funded, cross-centre PhD studentships. The partnership between scientists, clinicians and industry is to encourage their understanding of complement and related disorders, and to inspire and support research of growing health importance.

d) Research collaboration and networking

Complement UK provides a unique platform and encourages research collaboration and networking between specialists interested in complement system and related disorders.


There is a dedicated RESEARCH FORUM for the presentation and critical discussion of emerging research questions, sharing the information on current research projects and data (also in a confidential manner) and to initiate collaboration.

The Complement UK DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE NETWORK provides a self-help on-line service enabling selection of appropriate tests for particular conditions, and to update them regarding how and where to get these tests done.
