By

ISN is happy to announce the outcome of the latest Fellowship Program application session. Click here to view the full list of candidates who have been awarded a long or short-term fellowship. ISN would like to thank KRUK, APSN, CREED, ASN and ERA-EDTA for sponsoring this session.

The Australian and New Zealand Society of Nephrology (ANZSN) has also agreed to top-up ISN, ISN-CREED and ISN-APSN Fellowships that are hosted in Australia or New Zealand with a total contribution of $10,000 AUD per year, in recognition of the relatively high cost of living.

Several local fellowship were awarded to candidates applying in this round, helping, for instance, African candidates train in other African countries. For the first time, a Saulo Klahr Fellowship was given to the highest-ranked candidate from Latin America. After Saulo Klahr’s recent passing, this fellowship was set up to recognize his great contributions to nephrology and ISN. Fellowships have also been named after the Salmasi family and Otsuka.

KHDC Program reaches out to rural Nigeria

By

In 2007, Dr Ifeoma Ulasi received a grant through the ISN GO Research and Prevention Program to conduct a screening and prevention program in rural South-East Nigeria, identifying members of the population with symptoms of chronic kidney and cardiovascular disease. This initiative also went as far as to diagnose some cases of cancer.

Ulasi, a senior lecturer and consultant nephrologist at the College of Medicine, University of Nigeria, tells of her experience when a village chief was found to have reduced GFR. "He was referred to the tertiary centre where further investigations revealed he had prostate cancer. He has since been receiving the appropriate treatment," adds Ulasi.
