This year, the three National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases-awarded Pediatric Centers of Excellence in Nephrology are hosting this Network Scientific Symposium:

Promoting Research in Childhood Kidney Disease

This meeting will be an opportunity to share research findings from across the network, hear from experts and innovators, and support the broader pediatric nephrology research community.

Keynote speakers

Professor of Pediatrics
Chief of Pediatric Nephrology Division
Heidelberg University Hospital 

Matthias Kretzler, MD

Professor of Internal Medicine
Michigan Medical School

The Centers supporting this symposium are from University of Virginia, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and Washington University in St. Louis. Their focuses as individual centers are different, but they are all here to achieve the goals of the PCEN program: 

1. To attract new scientific expertise to the study of human pediatric renal physiology, kidney development, and pediatric kidney disorders

2. To encourage multidisciplinary research in these areas

3. To develop the pediatric nephrology research community
