Nephrology community remembers Detlef Schlöndorff
Detlef Schlöndorff, MD, died of pancreatic cancer in New York City on October 16, 2019, surrounded by his family.

He received many prizes in recognition of his work: the Franz Volhard Medal of the German Nephrology Society, the Luis Hernando International Nephrology Award from the Spanish Renal Foundation, and the Jean Hamburger Award from the International Society of Nephrology (ISN). He was active in multiple leadership roles within the ISN, including as editor in chief of the Kidney International from 2012-2017.
Detlef was a warm, engaging, cultured academic. Held in esteem by hundreds of friends and colleagues worldwide and devoted to his family, he will be greatly missed by all in his extensive community.
The ISN deeply mourns his loss and offers its sincerest condolences to his family.
