It is with great pleasure that we invite you, on behalf of the Renal Association, to join us at UK Kidney Week 2017 which will be held at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool (ACC Liverpool) from the 19 – 21 June 2017.
The 2017 UK Kidney Week will be a high level educational meeting that will enable the multi-professional attendees to keep abreast of developments in clinical practice and cutting edge scientific development.
The scientific programme consists of 25 symposia, generally organised in 3 parallel sessions throughout the 3 days of the conference. We have balanced the programme to ensure that ‘something for everyone’ is included and we have been particularly keen to make the meeting attractive to renal trainees, non-career grade staff, the practising clinician, members of the multi-disciplinary team as well as academic clinicians and scientists and the transplant community. Many sessions will integrate both the basic science and clinical aspects of topics so that scientists and clinicians will be able to obtain relevant CME of the full translational spectrum. We are anticipating that between 800 – 1000 delegates will attend UK Kidney Week 2017.
There will be plenty of opportunity for you to present your own work both in the form of selected oral presentations and moderated poster sessions. Details of the abstract submission process will be announced shortly.
We also warmly welcome the Pharma and devices industry who will have a strong presence at the meeting both in the exhibition area and by virtue of some sponsored symposia which will occur as breakfast and lunchtime meetings.
We are delighted that the conference will be held in association with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the British Transplant Society (BTS), both organisations bringing expertise, renowned speakers and attendees to the meeting.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to Liverpool in 2017.
With warm regards,
Professor of Nephrology
Academic Vice President of UK Renal Association and Conference Chair
