About ISN Forefronts Symposia

Forefronts in Nephrology Symposia have played an important educational role for nephrologists since 1984 by offering a specific focus on emerging and ground-breaking research. The events gather Nephrologists and active investigators from other fields to stimulate exposure to new scientific domains and review the latest developments in kidney disease; the interactive format allows nephrologists to develop a collegial relationship with leading researchers from other disciplines. Approximately half of the invited speakers are non-nephrologists.

Typically three events are hosted over a two year span (one in World Congress of Nephrology (WCN) years and two in off-years). ISN Forefronts symposia are structured to:

  • Include educational and scientific sessions
  • Include abstract-based poster sessions and presentations to enhance discussions and to boost interaction among participants
  • Be small in size with participation limited to a maximum of 150 working scientists who are selected based on their documented interest in the symposium topic
  • Allow for in-depth coverage of the topic and exchange of ideas.

The programs are carefully selected by the ISN Nexus and Forefronts Core Committee members who represent a range of inter-related disciplines, to ensure that the focus remains on cutting-edge scientific breakthroughs.
