With increasing uncertainties around variants of the COVID-19 virus, Kidney Week 2021 will now be a fully virtual meeting. Kidney Week is the world’s largest and most dynamic meeting of kidney professionals, where participants share their work, learn about the latest advances in the field, develop new collaborations, and listen to provocative exchanges between leading experts.
This year’s Kidney Week Education Committee and ASN staff are planning the first-ever hybrid Kidney Week to include in-person and virtual components. “Hybrid” can mean different things to different people, and ASN’s goal is to ensure a meaningful experience for every participant.
Congratulations to the recipients of the 2021 American Society of Nephrology Lifetime and Mid-Career Awards. They have helped to improve the lives of patients with kidney diseases; advanced research, treatments, and patient care; and mentored trainees and junior faculty.
