Fellows: International Research Scholar Opportunities

The opportunity for global research collaboration and training offers international fellows-in-training from around the globe a chance to learn in the United States as an international research scholar. ASN has polled U.S. nephrology teaching organizations and developed a list of institutions who would welcome an international research fellow into its labs.
