Press registration -- World Congress of Nephrology, April 21-25, 2007, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The World Congress of Nephrology (April 21-25, 2007, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) represents a unique opportunity for the global nephrology community to come together, share and exchange ideas, and collectively address current and future challenges faced by renal clinicians and scientists.

Updating on all aspects of basic and clinical research and care of renal patients, one of the many highlights for each day's program will be the keynote lectures to be given by a series of five outstanding scientists and clinicians covering several of the hottest topics in renal science and medicine.

Timely exchange and debate will surround the future applications of medical genetics to kidney disease, systems biology and the promise of personalized medicine, and hypoxia and hypoxia-inducible factors. Three clinical topics of particular interest will cover the connection between the kidney and cardiovascular disease, the current status of halting progression in diabetic nephropathy, and the often controversial issue of organ donation and allocation.

The core scientific program for WCN 2007 is divided into eight themes with over 70 individual symposia and some 300 invited speakers that will present topics of key interest to both clinicians and investigators. The themes (Molecular and Cell Biology and Physiology, Vascular Biology, Inflammation and Immunology and Pathology, Developmental Genetics and Pediatrics, General Clinical Nephrology, Acute Renal Failure, Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes and Hypertension, ESRD-dialysis, and Transplantation) will deliver the very latest advances in both clinical and basic research as well as updates on clinical care.

Interactive case discussions are part of several themes as well as sessions devoted to exciting abstracts of new research findings. Throughout the meeting over 2000 poster presentations will also take place another key element that will enhance your participation.

Press passes are limited and are o
