The ISN welcomes expressions of interest and nominations for the leadership position of
ISN Clinical Research Program Committee Deputy Chair
Open to all ISN members in good standing
Deadline to apply is 30 September 2022
The ISN welcomes expressions of interest and nominations for the position of ISN Clinical Research Program Committee Deputy Chair, succeeding Robert Walker who will become Chair of the Committee in replacement of Arpana Iyengar, beginning at the time of ISN World Congress of Nephrology 2023 (WCN’23).
The Clinical Research Program is one of ISN’s capacity building programs. It intends to build research capacity in low resource countries, and to help implement research projects at a local level to detect and manage non-communicable chronic diseases such as CKD, AKI, hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. The Clinical Research Program Committee also oversees courses designed to build research capacity, such as the Scientific Writing Course or Qualitative Research Methodology Course.
This is a volunteer leadership position for a period of 2 years, and the Deputy Chair is then expected to succeed the Chair at the end of their 2-year term. There is no honorarium attached to this role. ISN staff provide operational support to the Program, and the Chair and Deputy Chair are supported by a committee with regional representation which contributes to review and approval of submitted proposals.
The main work of the ISN Clinical Research Program Committee is the online scoring of Clinical Research applications once a year (deadline is on May 1) – the majority of the work therefore takes place in May. The ISN Clinical Research Program Committee ordinarily has a face-to-face meeting at the WCN and/or other events as applicable.
This call for expressions of interest and nominations is open to all ISN members in good standing.
