It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the ISN’s Nexus Symposium 2016 taking place in Berlin, Germany on April 14 – 17, 2016 at the Meliá Berlin Hotel. The focus this year will be on Translational Immunology in Kidney Disease: New therapies for renal immunopathology.
Drug development has dramatically improved disease outcomes in most medical disciplines, not so in nephrology. Despite enormous research efforts done by the basic science kidney research community, only few drug targets have been successfully validated and developed into innovative drugs for patients with kidney disease.
The Nexus Symposia are designed to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical practice. These meetings bring researchers and practitioners together to advance science and treatment around highly targeted and specific themes.
