According to Medscape, 3 out of 10 of the most-read articles by nephrologists in 2012 are from Kidney International. See below. A great way to end 2012 for our editorial team. Kudos to all of them, and we all wish 2013 will see even more achievements for KI.
Norbert Lameire will be standing down from his role as Chair of the GO CME Program in June 2013. He has done a superb job for ISN in this role over the last 6 years.
We anticipate a strong slate of nominations to replace Norbert in this very important role in the Global Outreach programs. The ISN leadership has already received a number of recommendations of excellent candidates, but we are keen to evaluate a very broad field. We would therefore be very pleased to receive from any ISN member a recommendation about an individual who you think we should be considering for this role.
With great regret, we announce the death of ISN member, John Stokes. Read the full obituary below.
Leading nephrologists often excel in their countries and region, as former ISN President Kiyoshi Kurokawa demonstrated by chairing the the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission (NAIIC), the Japanese Diet’s task force investigating the accident at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant.
The illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually, or more than one an hour, World Health Organisation experts have revealed.
THE WORLD BANK on Tuesday selected as its next president Dr. Jim Yong Kim, a Korean-American global health expert and president of Dartmouth College.
ISN leaders recently submitted a letter to the NEJM to highlight the role of GO programs in developing kidney medicine in Tanzania. Although the letter was not accepted for publication, we thought it would be of interest to ISN members, to reinforce the leading role that GO plays in building capacity in developing countries, through its Fellowship Program and other initiatives.
