The renal theme participated in August 2017 for the first time with a new course “The ins and outs of kidneys: From physiomics to transplantation” in the Radboud Summer School.

We welcomed 23 participants from 11 countries. Enthusiastic researchers and clinicians from several groups within the renal theme contributed to a highly successful week of lectures, demonstrations, hands-on activities, interactive sessions, and workshops. The participants were challenged to prepared a presentation about one of the four topics involved: Glomerular diseases, Tubular disorders, Ciliopathies or Replacement therapies.

During the summer of 2018, from August 6 – 11, the second edition of the course will be organized. We hope for a similar success in number of participants, enthusiasm and teachers to achieve an effective outreach by the renal theme. The summer school course is promoted within our national and international networks.
