“I am most pleased and excited about the wealth and breadth of all ISN educational activities. As a renal pathologist myself, I am particularly pleased to share with you all the outstanding resources related to renal pathology, developed by outstanding leaders at ISN.”
Agnes Fogo, ISN President
The ISN has developed several educational initiatives to provide training in the skills necessary to improve renal pathology standards around the world. Find here below an overview of our most recent educational content available on the ISN Academy.
The WCN’21 Renal Pathology Course offers an in-depth update of the various kidney lesions commonly encountered along with potential utility of ancillary techniques.
It also describes recent insights into the pathophysiologic aspects of diseases and recommendations for further molecular and genetic studies, where necessary. A range of the glomerular, tubulointerstitial and vascular lesions of the kidney are discussed along with problematic areas in transplant pathology.
Additionally, review a symposium dedicated to challenging topics in kidney disease that are relevant in most geographic areas, as well as a case seminar showing distinctive renal biopsy findings that are instructive towards a definitive diagnosis. The speakers are renal pathologists and nephrologists from around the world who are recognized leaders in their field.
Discover the WCN’21 Renal Pathology Course sessions:
This course, based on digital microscopy, is in part dedicated to native renal diseases, with special attention on new insights in renal pathophysiology, clinical nephrology, and renal histopathology.
A section of the course examines the challenging field of renal transplant pathology, including background information on transplant immunology and clinical and pathological aspects of acute and chronic allograft dysfunction.
The course includes:
Renal diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome
Renal diseases associated with hematuria and proteinuria
Renal diseases associated with acute nephritic syndrome and rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis
