The increasing epidemic of progressive renal disease in the developing world is still largely unappreciated, as is the contribution that renal disease makes to other chronic health problems such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. This post-conference meeting joins those who are researching the basis of renal disease with practitioners working in the field, both in the formal sessions of the meeting and informally in the city of Santa Fe. The meeting aims to build a bridge from nephrologists to patients, the governments and funding agencies who all support the continuing struggle against kidney disease.

President: Barry Brenner
Chairman: John Dirks
Program Director: David Pugsley
