Third International Conference on Membranous Nephropathy
The Linnean Society, Burlington House, London, UK
Dec 4th – Dec 5th, 2015

Come back to this page after September 2015 for news and details about this conference. New developments are anticipated.

The Halpin Foundation, in close collaboration with University College London and The University of Manchester, is planning to sponsor a third international meeting about membranous nephropathy (MN). As before, the objective of the conference is to foster collaborative clinical and scientific research, with a particular focus on MN. At this meeting world leading experts will discuss recent progress made in the understanding of MN. This meeting is following on two other most successful meetings previously held in Bergamo, Italy in 2007 and 2011, which were also sponsored by the Halpin Foundation. Main themes to be discussed will be related to the biology (autoantibodies), the diagnosis, genetics, and the treatment of MN. This meeting will provide a venue for the world’s leading experts to meet, to discuss and to plan more collaborative work to tackle the ongoing problems in search for a cure for MN.

The meeting will take place at the Linnean Society in London, UK. The Society occupies a unique and prestigious location in central London. The Society provides a continuous forum for the discussion and advancement of the life sciences. It was at a meeting of the Society at this very same place in 1858 where history was made. Papers from Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace outlining the theory of evolution by natural selection were first presented here.

University College London and The University of Manchester have established national Centers of excellence for studies into MN. Professor
