Basic/Clinical Science Session

Leveraging Data Science to Improve Kidney Health

November 05, 2022 | 04:30 PM - 06:00 PM

Location: WF2 Tangerine, Orange County Convention Center‚ West Building

Session Description

Data science has the potential to drive medical innovation and improve the quality of care for patients with AKI. To best apply data science, data democratization and education in data science specific to the field of nephrology are needed. This session discusses the importance of current advances in data science for AKI and how these advances can change the future of the field with data democratization and education.

ASN thanks the ASN AKINow Workgroup for assistance with this session.
