About ISN Nexus Symposia 

Introduced in 2006, the Nexus Symposia format was designed to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical practice by offering a profound focus on translational medicine and clinical application.

The Nexus symposia aim to address the increasingly multidisciplinary approach to kidney health issues by bringing together researchers and practicing clinicians to advance science and treatment around highly targeted and specific themes of current relevance. These meetings enable collaborations to take place with an in- depth focus on real clinical challenges and directions for future research and healthcare solutions.

This new innovative educational format is an important part of ISN’s meeting strategy; three symposia are hosted in different locations over a two year span (one in World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) years and two in off-years) Each meeting is specially structured to include:

  • Several Clinical Sessions and Translational Sessions which clearly link the research to practice session per day
  • Several interactive plenary sessions
  • Poster Sessions and ample networking opportunities

The symposia are organized through the ISN Nexus and Forefronts Committee Members who represent a range of inter-related disciplines.

Call for Proposals

ISN is currently seeking proposals from interested ‘Organizers’ for clinically relevant topics that would lend themselves for examination for forthcoming ISN Nexus Format symposia.
