Welcome to EMCHD 2015

kyrka_gustavianum_DavidNaylorIt is an a great pleasure and an honor to invite you to the 15th European Meeting on Complement in Human Disease in Uppsala, Sweden in June 2015. The European Complement Meeting is a biannual event that is being organized by active researchers in the field of complement and held in different cities and countries all over Europe.

Uppsala holds a rich history, having for long periods been the political, religious and academic center of Sweden. Uppsala University, which was founded in 1477, is today ranked among the top 100 in the World. It has hosted many great scientists over the centuries, e.g., Anders Celsius, Carl Linnaeus, Anders Jonas Ångström, Jakob Berzelius and Dag Hammarskjöld. It is especially relevant to our field that C3 was first isolated and characterized in Uppsala in 1959.

The proximity to the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, provides additional benefits as a potential site for arranging both pre- and post- congress tours, as well as for excursions or tourism. From abroad, Uppsala is most conveniently reached by air, having Arlanda, Sweden’s largest international airport, 35 minutes away from the city center.
