Early-Career Complementologists


The scientific youth organisation, Early-Career Complementologists (ECCO), has been started as a collaboration between the International Complement Society and the European Complement Network.


In the ECCO we work to engage young researchers in the complement field. We share information about great science, job opportunities, fellowship-calls, as well as social activities. Follow our weekly updates on social media, and participate in shaping your complement society. Follow us, and message us directly on LinkedIn: Early-Career Complementologists or on Facebook:
