Virtual Education Symposium on Neonatal Nephrology - 2023
The NKC has organized a free virtual education symposium on neonatal nephrology on 19th October from 12.30pm to 3.00pm pacific time; 3.30pm to 6.00pm eastern time. The symposium is designed to help support neonatal and nephrology fellows and junior faculty with educational topics on kidney development, acute kidney injury, neonatal dialysis, and neonatal conditions that affect kidney function. The symposium is open to fellows and faculty, will be held via zoom, and will require registration by 13th October. We look forward to as many trainees and junior faculty attending as possible.
Research Incubator in Neonatal Kidney Disease (RINK)
We will be holding the inaugural meeting Research Incubator in Neonatal Kidney Disease (RINK) virtually on November 10th, 2023 from 1-4:30 pm EST.
The RINK is a multidisciplinary research consortium that will build on the success of the Neonatal Kidney Collaborative and foster continue collaboration to improve outcomes in neonates with kidney disease. We anticipate that the RINK will serve to expand the NKC’s research portfolio to include more investigator drive studies from a broader range of investigators, and provide flexibility to NKC members to participate in studies ranging in sizes and scope from small investigator driven studies to clinical trials.

Critical Care Nephrology in Children
It was great to see so many neonatal nephrology enthusiasts (and NKC members!) at the First International Conference of Critical Care Nephrology in Children in London. Thanks to Stuart Goldstein and Akash Deep for hosting! We were excited to have great talks from many of our members and to see so many exciting posters and sessions.
