Donald W Seldin (1920-2018)
We announce with regret the recent death of past ISN President, Don Seldin.
Seldin was born in New York, USA and after training in medicine and nephrology moved to Dallas where he spent the rest of his career building a formidable teaching and research department at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He was President of ISN from 1984 to 1987; the Seldin Lecture named in his honour continues to be given at the World Congress of Nephrology.
A fuller appreciation of his life and his remarkable achievements in nephrology will be published soon in Kidney International.
