ISN Symposium 2012 Leaderboard 600x100

ISN Nexus 2012 Copenhagen

Will look at the latest knowledge in physiology, pathophysiology and treatment. Topic highlights include: bone-kidney axis and vascular calcification; renal and intestinal divalent ion transport; new understanding of phosphate metabolism; PTH biosynthesis; the osteocyte; vitamin D & calcimimetics; parathyroid function in CKD; FGF23 and klotho; hormones, receptors and transporters; renal osteodystrophy; vascular effects in CKD-MBD; vascular calcifications in CKD-MBD


Bone and Kidney

In chronic kidney disease, a severe breakdown in the crucial balance between bone, kidney and vasculature exists, where the cross-talk and interaction largely remain without translation. The ”Bone and the Kidney” Nexus Symposium seeks to bridge this gap by focusing on cutting-edge knowledge in physiology, pathophysiology, and treatment, relating to the disorders of bone and mineral metabolism and cardiovascular disease CKD.


What are Nexus Symposia?

The Nexus Symposia are designed to bridge the gap between basic research and clinical practice. These meetings bring researchers and practitioners together to advance science and treatment around highly targeted and specific themes.


Copenhagen, Denmark

Arguably one of the most cosmopolitan cities in all of Scandinavia, Copenhagen is also a major regional center of culture, business, media, and science. It has consecutively been recognized as one of the cities with the best quality of life. Visitors who come to Copenhagen can see for themselves what makes the Danes the happiest people in the world!


WCN 2013, Hong Kong

ISN’s 2013 World Congress of Nephrology, hosted by the Hong Kong Society of Nephrology in partnership with the Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology will take place in Hong Kong from May May 31 to June 4, 2013. The WCN 2011 is the leading ‘world congress’ of nephrology, not only providing a world-class scientific program but also reflecting the unique role of ISN to advance renal care in the developed and the developing world.
