    Applied Renal Physiology

    This unique UK course aims to integrate physiological principles with day-to-day clinical practice and to update on recent developments in basic renal physiology. It features formal, introductory lectures each day and interactive clinical case presentations applying “thinking physiology” at the bedside. It is intended for both clinicians and scientists - trainees in Nephrology, General (Internal) Medicine and Intensive Care Medicine, Consultant Nephrologists and General Physicians, and those working in veterinary medicine and non-clinical grades.

    ERA-EDTA 53rd Congress

    ERA-EDTA logo new 1014_2Wien 2016 banner 700x280 NEW

    Dear Colleagues and Friends;

    It is a great pleasure and honour for us to invite you to Vienna to attend the 53rd ERA-EDTA Congress in 2016, which will be held in cooperation with the Austrian Society of Nephrology. In addition many other societies with similar interests will join us as well. In line with a long standing tradition the scientific programme committee, this time chaired by Prof. Danilo Fliser from Homburg (Germany), is working hard to make this event again a memorable one by complementing up to date research sessions with diverse educational symposia. The Austria Center Vienna, the congress venue, can be reached conveniently from the historic city center (Stephansplatz) within 7 minutes by underground transportation. It is located within a few minutes´ walk from the river Danube and the Donaupark, a popular leisure area, and it has the capacity to host 20.000 delegates. It offers 24 fully equipped lecture rooms, 180 meeting rooms and 22.000 sqm of exhibition space.

    Vienna is a modern city in the heart of Europe, which nonetheless was able to preserve its historic charm. Located near the city center one of the most famous buildings is the Vienna Secession built by Joseph Maria Olbrich, the dome of which can be seen on the front page of this announcement. The Vienna Secession was formed in 1897 by a group of artists (among them Gustav Klimt, Kolomann Moser and Josef Hoffmann), who had resigned from the Association of Austrian Artists because of the prevailing conservatism. Above the entrance visitors can read “To every age its art. To art its freedom”, which symbolizes the Secessionists´ desire to explore the possibilities of art outside the confines of tradition. The main theme of the Congress “from big data to personalized therapy – biostatistics meets molecular medicine” somehow mirrors this effort. The Vienna congress will focus on new ways on how research methodologies might change in the near future and why Nephrology is on the top list of areas that can benefit from these developments.

    We all hope that you will join us at this event and share some great days of education and science but also use your visit to enjoy one of the most beautiful cities located in the heart of Europe.

    Renal Physiology “Old and New”

    Renal Physiology “Old and New”

    13 – 16 June 2016 Gothenburg

    A four-day open international symposium including a basic renal physiology part also designed as a course for PhD students followed by one day of clinical renal physiology.

    The first three days aim at providing the participants with in-depth state-of-the-art knowledge in basic renal physiology and applied to clinical nephrology. Topics covered include the link between hypertension and the kidney, diabetes and its renal complications, the glomerular barrier, mechanisms behind proteinuria, tubular function, with a focus on molecular and functional aspects. The course is based on teaching and learning in higher education workshops and panel discussions, and poster presentations will be used to view different perspectives and stimulate student activity. The course is highly interactive and assumes active participation.

    The fourth day symposium in Clinical and Renal Pathophysiology links basic renal physiology to the latest science within the clinical and applied renal physiology field.

    Dialysis 2016

    A comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end-stage renal failure

    This is a comprehensive course on dialysis and the management of patients with end stage-renal failure. The management of end-stage renal failure by dialysis forms a central component of all renal units. However, it is often the least intensively taught component of nephrology training. This course is a thorough introduction to dialysis, from basics to new developments. Our expert faculty provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of dialysis and ESRF through a mixture of informal lectures and workshops. The course is aimed at Specialist Registrars in nephrology, but is also of interest to other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients with chronic renal failure. For more information, please visit https://www.ucl.ac.uk/nephrology/teaching/courses-2016/renal-dialysis-course-2016 or alternatively please email Med.Cfnevents@ucl.ac.uk
