ASN Communities Blog: Bringing the best of basic sciences to 2017 Kidney Week

By Pamela Tran

Topics will encompass cell biology, physiology, tissue engineering, cutting-edge microscopy and sequencing, genetics, targeted therapies and much more.  One of the highlights of every Kidney Week are the morning plenary lectures, which feature topics of broad, general interest in the basic and translational sciences delivered by highly accomplished presenters. Notably, this meeting brings four outstanding plenary speakers.  This begins with Dr. Laura Niklason, whose lung and blood vessel engineering was recognized among the top 50 inventions in Time magazine in 2010

  • Thursday, November 2 at 8:45AM, Dr. Laura Nikalson will address how her regenerative strategies can be applied to dialysis.
  • Friday, November 3 at 8:45AM, Dr. Brian Kent Kobilka, co-recipient of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, will discuss his ground-breaking work on G protein-coupled receptors and the state of drug discovery.
  • Saturday, November 4 at 8:40AM, Dr. Andrew Feinberg, discoverer of epigenetics in cancer, will discuss mechanisms of epigenetic modification and his pioneering of molecular and epidemiological tools for epigenomics.
  • Sunday, November 5 at 8:47AM, Dr. Richard Flavell, co-discoverer of introns, will address innate immunity in tissue injury and inflammation.


For the first time, we, the ASN Basic Science Community Leaders, will be available to meet you personally and look forward to welcoming you to our thriving community. Join us at the Communities Lounge in the exhibit hall one of two times: 

We encourage you to live tweet your experiences at #kidneywk and follow all the basic science at #ASNbasicSci.  We are thrilled about all that 2017 Kidney Week has to offer and are extremely excited to see you!
