ISN Clinical Research
The ISN Clinical Research Program supports research and education initiatives involving nephrologists, health workers, and local authorities in lower, lower-middle, and upper-middle income countries.
The Program helps implement research projects to detect and manage non-communicable chronic diseases such as CKD, AKI, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
The ISN and the Société Francophone de Néphrologie Dialyse et Transplantation (SFNDT) have joined forces to support the development of nephrology in French-speaking countries in Africa.
The ISN Online Scientific Writing Course cohosted by Sociedad Latinoamericana de Nefrología e Hipertensión (SLANH) in the Latin America region is holding its second edition in May 2022.
This online course is given by experts in the field of scientific writing to help physicians and researchers improve their scientific writing skills, so they achieve the skills needed to publish their research work.
The ISN Online Scientific Writing Course 2022 is running during 4 consecutive Saturdays of May:
- 7, 14, 21 and 28 May
- 12:30 PM to 3:00 PM GMT -3
- 2,5-hour live session each Saturday
