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 is designed to extensively explore a variety of scientific and clinical aspects of diabetes and kidney disease throughout the lifespan and 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 details.


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 to 25, 2017. Read more

Kidney International


KIKidney International (KI) is ISN's official journal, one of the most cited journals in nephrology and widely regarded as the world's premier journal on the development and consequences of kidney disease. KI is peer-reviewed and publishes original research in both basic science and clinical medicine covering renal physiology, biochemistry, pathology, immunology, morphology and more. It aims to inform the renal researcher and the practicing nephrologist on all aspects of renal studies, including basic and clinical research, emerging therapeutics, and novel diagnosis.

About ISN Forefronts Symposia  Forefronts in Nephrology Symposia have played an important educational role for nephrologists since 1984 by offering a specific focus on emerging and ground-breaking research. The events gather Nephrologists and active investigators from other fields to stimulate exposure to new scientific domains and review the latest developments in kidney disease; the interactive format allows nephrologists to develop a collegial relationship with leading researchers from other disciplines. Approximately half of the invited speakers are non-nephrologists.

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.
