What's new!

Kidney Week 2019:

We are looking forward to the American Society of Nephrology Kidney Week 2019, held in Washington DC November 7th – 10th. There will be a number of neonatal kidney topics discussed at plenaries, educational symposia, and poster sessions. Of particular note, there will be new data presented from the AWAKEN study on hypoalbuminemia (Thursday at 5:30pm) and dysnatremia (Friday at 10am). We have compiled some of the NKC relevant talks into the following PDF (Neonatal Nephrology Sessions for Kidney Week 2019), for your easy reference. We look forward to seeing many of you there.

If you are unable to attend, consider following along on Twitter (@NeonatalKidney) – we will be Tweeting content from throughout the meeting, especially on new data from AWAKEN and NKC members.

The 2019 PAS conference was an exciting and important time for the NKC. Neonatal kidney topics were presented frequently and were well attended. There were 16 different talks given on neonatal kidney topics and 36 posters specifically presenting neonatal kidney research. New analysis from the AWAKEN data was presented in poster format and various other results of the AWAKEN study were discussed in many other talks. The NKC was even highlighted during a session on how to do collaborative research. Over 60 different NKC members attended our annual working dinner. Throughout the week the NKC was active on twitter and our tweets earned 13,100 impressions over the time of PAS.
