“Shape the Future” Webinar: Early-Career Opportunities for Young Nephrologists

The Young Nephrologist Committee will host a Spotlight Webinar “Spotlight on Young Nephrologists: ISN opportunities to shape the future of global kidney health,” presenting exciting avenues for personal development, scientific growth, and career advancement through ISN activities.

The webinar, which takes place at 4 p.m. on February 10, 2021, will host four remarkable global nephrology actors who lead impactful ISN initiatives:

Pierre Ronco, chief editor of Kidney International (KI), will present the ISN-KI Editorial Fellowship and other opportunities available to young nephrologists within the journal. This Fellowship provides early-career researchers with the skills to review and critically evaluate manuscripts and manage editorial responsibilities.

Arpana Iyengar, a pediatric nephrologist in Bangalore, India, and Deputy Chair of ISN’s Clinical Research Program (CRP), will give a detailed account of the research initiative that she is currently leading at St John’s Research Institute as part of ISN’s CRP.

Brett Cullis, from South Africa, will describe how the “Saving Young Lives” Program – a  partnership between the ISN, the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA), the International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD), and EuroPD –  has developed and maintained sustainable acute peritoneal dialysis programs treating adults and children with AKI in very low-resource settings through education, training, and mentorship.

Todd Alexander, program director of the Kidney Research Scientist Core Education and National Training (KRESCENT) program in Canada, will demonstrate how the program’s solid curriculum and mentorship encourage and support early-career kidney research scientists and trainees in multiple disciplines to promote the development of kidney research leadership in Canada.

The YNC Committee will organize two other activities at virtual WCN’21: A scientific session presenting results from leading young researchers from different world regions and an online networking event to build ties and reinforce friendships among young nephrologists worldwide.
