ISN Forefronts Symposia focus on emerging and ground-breaking research. They gather nephrologists and active investigators from surrounding medical areas to explore new scientific domains and review the latest developments in kidney disease.
The ISN Forefronts in Nephrology Symposia series is fundamentally designed to advance scientific nephrology in pace with programs in clinical nephrology. Through highly interactive symposia, scientific knowledge is exchanged and advanced by intermingling nephrologists with non-nephrologists from interrelated disciplines as well as basic and clinical scientists.
Therefore, ISN Forefronts Symposia are deliberately limited in scope to allow for high levels of interaction, deep dialogue plenty of time for focused exchange. Each symposium aims to attract no more than 100 – 150 active scientists.
About the ISN:
Since its foundation in 1960, the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) has pursued the worldwide advancement of education, science and patient care in nephrology (the medical sub-specialty dealing with the Kidneys).
The Society represents a wide international network and provides an efficient platform for timely scientific exchange, debate and dissemination between healthcare professionals around the world. It is also dedicated to addressing the disparity between the developing and developed worlds in the research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of kidney disease.
The ISN has over 10,000 professional members from more than 126 countries. In addition, ISN closely collaborates with over 70 national and regional nephrology societies around the world, representing about 20,000 professionals.
