In an effort to improve the lives of children and adults with kidney disease, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Penn Medicine launched the Penn-CHOP Kidney Innovation Center (KIC). KIC is led by Michelle Denburg, MD, MSCE and Katalin Susztak, MD, PhD.

The center will focus on three main areas: fostering cutting-edge discoveries through collaboration between Penn and CHOP; recruiting and growing top talent to key areas that align with the center’s mission; and building the next generation of nephrology researchers through an enhanced training and mentorship program.

The center will promote a culture of cooperation, starting with this inaugural symposium, and other events that will be held throughout the year. This symposium will feature oral abstracts and keynote speakers: Parker Wilson, MD, PhD; Mingyao Li, PhD; and Alex Hughes, PhD.

We hope you'll join us for this kick-off event!
