Join ASN in urging Congress to increase funding for kidney research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2016. Federal investments in kidney research are less than 1% of Medicare costs for kidney care. Research for new therapies to slow the progression of kidney disease and make dialysis more efficient would yield significant federal savings. Please take 10 seconds to send your members of Congress a pre-composed email.
ASN is now accepting abstracts for Kidney Week 2015, the world's premier nephrology meeting, to be held November 3-8 in San Diego, CA. The deadline to submit an abstract is Wednesday, June 3, 2015, 2:00 p.m. EDT.
