ICS ASK AN EXPERT
A new initiative called "Ask an Expert" has been designed as a resource for Supporters of the Society who are in need of expert advice in the field of Complement.
ICS is assembling an online, password-protected database to enable external bodies to identify relevant specialists in the Complement area. Our volunteers will be basic and translational researchers, clinicians and diagnostics experts; with decades of research and/or clinical practice in the field of Complement.
Who are the Experts?
Complement Experts are self-identified and members of the ICS who volunteer and make themselves available to provide limited information and advice on many aspects of Complement research. We are looking for volunteer Experts in the following areas:
Complement Components: Structure and Function
Complement Genetics and Deficiencies
Complement Regulation of Innate Inflammatory Responses
Complement Regulation of Adaptive Immunity
Complement in Host-Pathogen Interaction
Complement and Autoimmune Disease
Complement in Vascular Biology and Diseases
Complement and the Nervous System
Complement Inhibitors: Therapeutic Intervention
Complement Clinical Trials
Complement: All other topics (microbiome, metabolism, organ
specific disorders, synthesis etc.)
Clinical Applications: Diagnostics or Therapy
How will it work?
When a Supporter would like the professional opinion of a Complementologist, they may contact the Expert directly through links provided with each expert behind a password protected page on the website.
Experts will fill out the Expert Volunteer Form and self-identify the categories they will provide expertise.
Note: Your information and photo will be posted to a separate page that is password protected. You will be
provided the password and have the option to review and request changes prior to the page being enabled.
Support by the ICS is limited to facilitating an initial contact between interested parties. All further activities, inclusive of contracts, consultation and information flow are the responsibilities of the individual Expert and interested Supporter. Specifically, the ICS makes no guarantee as to the content or information provided by the Expert.
