Donald W Seldin (1920-2018)

We announce with regret the recent death of past ISN President, Don Seldin.

donald w seldinSeldin was born in New York, USA and after  training in medicine and nephrology moved to Dallas where he spent the rest of his career building a formidable teaching and research department at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He was President of  ISN from 1984 to 1987;  the Seldin Lecture named in his honour continues to be given at the World Congress of Nephrology.

A fuller appreciation of his life and his remarkable achievements in nephrology will be published soon in Kidney International.

 

Responding to the crisis facing Venezuelan patients with kidney disease, ISN and the Latin American Society of Nephrology and Hypertension (SLANH) have set out to tackle kidney disease and advance kidney health by combining their expertise and knowledge.

The Washington University (WU) School of Medicine in St-Louis recently took part in the First Annual Update in Nephrology: Leading the Battle against Chronic Kidney Disease in Guatemala City.

Professor Robin Anthony Jeffrey Eady MBE, was a British dermatologist and the world's longest surviving kidney patient after receiving dialysis from the 1960s.

It was recently reported on Ghana web news that First Sky Group of Companies has donated two million Ghana Cedis to Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, so more patients with acute kidney disease can get free treatment across the country.

According to the recent Google Scholar metrics, Kidney International is ranked first among all nephrology journals.

ISN fully endorsed the Summit’s Statement, which calls on all religious, political and social leaders, national and international legislators to recognize that organ and human trafficking for organ removal are ‘true crimes against humanity.’
