Introducing the Second Detlef Schlöndorff ISN Fellow

The ISN is pleased to announce the second Detlef Schlöndorff Fellowship recipient,
Ahmad Naseer Kaihan.

Ahmad Naseer Kaihan will travel from his home center, the Payem Sehat Hospital in Afghanistan, to the MGM Healthcare Center in India. He will spend 12 months training in clinical nephrology under supervision from Georgi Abraham and then return to his home region to help improve kidney care using skills gained during his fellowship.

His training is supported by the Detlef Schlöndorff Fellowship Fund.

Detlef Schlöndorff was a prolific renal investigator and active in multiple leadership roles within the ISN, including as editor of Kidney International (KI). He received the ISN Jean Hamburger Award in 2019 and trained and mentored over 50 fellows worldwide, including some of the current world leaders in academic nephrology.

Help us continue Professor Schlöndorff’s legacy of advancing kidney care worldwide by supporting ISN Fellows. Doing so contributes to their training and development and helps improve the standard of care in their home countries.

The ISN wishes to thank Barbel Schlöndorff, and Patricia and Jeremiah Morrissey for their recent generous donations to this fund.
