Dear friends and colleagues,
we are delighted to invite you to a special scientific event sponsored by IPNA.Clinical and epidemiological research in small patient populations poses numerous challenges, many of which can be overcome by collaboration and innovative approaches to data collection and biostatistical analysis. Aiming to advance high-level clinical research in pediatric kidney diseases around the globe, IPNA would like to create a forum for collaboration and the generation of ideas. Hence, we have the immense pleasure to announce the first international workshop dedicated to clinical and epidemiological research in pediatric nephrology, which will be held May 24-26 2017 in the charming university town of Heidelberg, Germany.
We have asked 40 outstanding experts from around the globe to share their insights regarding birth cohort studies, landmark trials, international registries and cohort studies, novel statistical approaches in rare disease research, organizational and ethical issues in clinical trials, the role of genetics in clinical and epidemiological research, and the potential of innovative digital technologies in renal research.
In addition to the invited lectures and podium discussions, attendees are encouraged to present their own original research during a poster reception to be held during the evening of May 24. We are excited about the prospect of an intense exchange that will help to strengthen existing and build new international networks and friendships in pediatric nephrology.
Last but not the least, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to our sponsors, whose generosity has made this meeting possible.
Looking forward to seeing you in Heidelberg,
Franz Schaefer and Bradley Warady
