As you probably know the abstract submission deadline for the ISN Forefronts in Shenzhen 2015 is coming up June 22.
To make sure potential contributors don't miss this opportunity, we would be very thankful if you, in your role as President of the Regional Board, could help us pass the information on about the abstract submission deadline to your colleagues and contacts that might be interested in it.
Below is a description of the event. Feel free to copy-paste and pass on. I also attached banner ads and a powerpoint slide:
Don't forget to submit your abstract before June 22!
ISN Forefront Symposium 2015:
October 22-25, 2015
Hypertension and vascular disease are important consequences of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and they are major contributors to its high morbidity and mortality. The link between inflammation in CKD and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is widely recognized, but its pathophysiological basis is still unclear, as is the relationship of inflammation in CKD to innate and adaptive immunity.
Recent and important discoveries have been made that are changing our understanding of physiology and immunology, leading to new directions in research in each field and potentially new opportunities in therapeutics. Examples include the role of ATP as an extracellular messenger, purinergic receptors, immune cell regulation and the NALP3 inflammasome, angiotensin-11 and macrophage recruitment in the kidney and skin; cytokines, the sympathetic nervous system and neurogenic hypertension; systemic hypertension and inflammation, sodium balance and tissue distribution, hypertension and autoimmunity; atheroma and inflammation.
In this symposium we will focus on cardio-renal pathophysiology and its links with immunopathology and inflammation.
The abstract submitters of accepted abstracts are entitled to register at the discounted registration fees provided they register by the early bird deadline which is July 24, 2015.
