The oustanding and comprehensive scientific program of renal science has been developed to update on all aspects of basic clinical and laboratory research and clinical care of renal patients.

The Opening Lecture - to be given by Richard P. Lifton, Yale University School of Medicine (USA) - will be followed by a series of keynote lectures to be given by a series of five outstanding scientists and clinicians that will cover several of the hottest topics in renal science and medicine:

Keynote 1- April 22, 2007, 11:00-12:30
Kevin Davies (USA), Editor-in-Chief, Bio-IT World and author of Cracking the Genome: Systems Biology and the Promise of Personalized Medicine.

Keynote 2 - April 22, 2007, 11:00-12:30
