Registration for 2018 IRIS Renal Week Is Now Open!

Registration is now open for the 2018 IRIS Renal Week, held at UC Davis from March 21-24th, 2018.  The conference lecture and laboratory schedule is posted on the website (although some small changes may still occur).  This is an amazing conference, brining nephrology and urology folks from around the globe into one room.  For those who would like to gain some additional education in the basics of extracorporeal therapies, there is a Boot Camp held before the meeting on March 19th and 20th.  These two dates will cover the basic principles and practices of IHD, CRRT, and apheresis with hands-on labs for the attendees.

Notable highlights of this year’s IRIS Renal Week:

  • State of the art lectures from human nephrologists
  • Renewed approaches to glomerular disease
  • Future extracorporeal treatment opportunities
  • Update on the diagnosis and management of hypertension
  • Bringing biomarkers from research to bedside
  • One-Health and comparative nephrology
  • Berryessa Gap Winery dinner (separate registration required)
  • Laboratory demonstrations of intermittent hemodialysis, continuous renal replacement, apheresis, renal biopsy and pathology, ultrasound guided vascular access, and more!
  • Friday evening dinner reception for all attendees
  • Boot Camp pre-meeting for those hoping to gain experience with extracorporeal therapy basics

This is the 7th biannual Renal Week meeting, and the second to be officially sponsored by IRIS.  The conference is a wonderful opportunity to learn, network, share, and be inspired.  We hope to see you there!

If you cannot attend in California, there is an option to register for live streaming of the lectures (not labs) on the conference website.

STAY TUNED for scholarship applications for residents and trainees to apply for travel grants. We hope you encourage all colleagues, particularly the younger ones, to become excited about the urinary tract and attend this conference.

Please feel free to contact any of us if you have any questions!
