Past ISN Fellows Contribute to New Research Article on Kidney Transplantation in LMICs

Five former ISN Fellows have collaborated with ISN member Mohamed Elrggal on the paper “Disparities in Access to Kidney Transplantation in Developing Countries,” now published in the journal Transplantation.

Sibel Bek, Ali Shendi, Elliot Tannor, Yannick Nlandu, and Abduzhappar Gaipov contributed to the article, which examines factors implicated in deficiencies in kidney replacement therapy around the world. These former ISN Fellows have been collaborating on the project since 2019 and submitted their results as an abstract at WCN’20.

The project’s success highlights the power of the ISN Fellowship program to build lasting connections that help advance global kidney care long after fellows return home.

An additional seven past ISN Fellows contributed research and data to the project – Klara Paudel, Ismoil Rashidov, Milena Voskanyan, Nidhi Singh, AE Nono Tomta, Khalida Soki, and Massarah Jalalonmuhali.

The ISN congratulates all involved and looks forward to seeing more fruits of these collaborative efforts in the future.
