NEW ABSTRACT CATEGORIES: REHABILITATION / HISTORY OF NEPHROLOGY   NEW!

Due to the fact that ERA-EDTA recently started two collaborations with EURORECKD (European Association of Rehabilitation in Chronic Kidney Disease) and IAHN (International Association for the History of Nephrology) and two new categories for abstract submission have been added to the list: “Chronic Kidney Disease. Rehabilitation” and “History of Nephrology” respectively.

 
SPECIAL TRAVEL GRANTS: HISTORY OF NEPHROLOGY / GERIATRIC NEPHROLOGY   NEW!
Thanks to a generous grant from the International Society of Geriatric Nephrology and Urology (ISGNU), meant to honour the memory of Prof. Dimitrious G. Oreopoulos, ERA-EDTA will give a travel grant of EUR 1,500 to the best abstract on geriatric nephrology submitted by a young author. Abstracts can be related to all aspects of geriatric nephrology and can be submitted under any of the abstract categories.

A travel grant of EUR 1,000 will be given to the best abstract submitted under the “History of Nephrology” category by a young author.
