    This Nexus meeting will highlight the latest advances in unraveling the role of the kidney in hypertension featuring a range of clinically relevant topics including the kidney as a requisite cause of hypertension, the role of the immune system in hypertension, the rationale behind evolving guidelines for treatment of hypertension in patients with kidney disease, new concepts of sodium homeostasis, and the role of renal denervation in hypertension therapy.
  • 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.
  • Brisbane, Australia

    Here, the thinking is shared, the ideas are up for grabs, and the problems are solved together at international and national conventions. And in between the itinerary, whether you have a few hours or a few days, be sure to explore the Brisbane region and discover why the locals say ‘Give me Brisbane Any Day'.

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.
