World Congress of Nephrology 2017

wcn 2017 logoFor the first time, an international nephrology meeting focuses on diabetes and kidney disease, a worldwide problem, but one very important to Latin America and Mexico in particular. The program has been designed to extensively explore a variety of scientific and clinical aspects of diabetes and kidney disease through out the lifespan, and throughout the spectrum of kidney disease. This is an amazing opportunity to connect with the nephrology community in a compact setting, and interact with colleagues as well as understand the critical importance of diabetic kidney disease. Visit the Program pages for more detailed information.


The ISN World Congress of Nephrology (WCN 2017) not only features a world-class scientific program but also reflects the unique role of ISN’s efforts in advancing renal care in the developing and developed world. It takes place in Mexico City from April 21-25, 2017. Read more

Welcome to the International Society of Nephrology

Since its foundation in 1960, the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) has pursued the worldwide advancement of education, science and patient care in nephrology.

The Society represents a wide international network and provides an efficient platform for timely scientific exchange, debate and dissemination between healthcare professionals around the world. It is also dedicated to addressing the disparity between the developing and developed worlds in the research, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of kidney disease.

The ISN has over 9000 professional members from more than 152 countries. In addition, it closely collaborates with over 92 national and regional nephrology societies worldwide, representing about 20,000 professionals. *ISN Membership is ever evolving/growing. Numbers may be different from printed documents.

The ISN continues to develop and consolidate several programs, initiatives and partnerships that will help to further deliver on its two overarching goals: reducing the incidence and impact of kidney disease worldwide, and making the society a leading international organization for all issues related to the science and practice of nephrology.
