Non-profit organization committed to improvement and dissemination of knowledge regarding the pathology and pathophysiology of renal disease

Seminars in Nephropathology: A Joint Venture between GlomCon and the RPS

  • June 11, 2019
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

An Update on the Classification and Pathologic Diagnosis of MGRS Lesions

The term monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance (MGRS) was introduced in 2012 by the International Kidney and Monoclonal Gammopathy Research Group. In 2019, the definition of MGRS, the diagnostic criteria, and classification for MGRS-related diseases were updated. At the end of this session, the participants will be able to classify renal diseases associated with MGRS, to list and discuss the entities recently included in the spectrum of MGRS-associated kidney diseases.

About the Speaker:

About the Seminars:

This new webinar series brings together two successful organizations with a common goal of improving and disseminating the knowledge of glomerular kidney diseases. The Renal Pathology Society promotes excellence in diagnosis and research and encourages training and education in renal disease to its members around the world. This series’ curriculum focuses on research in renal pathology and new technologies applied to renal pathology, including image analytics, machine learning, multi-‘omics, and computational pathology approaches to renal biopsy analyses. Through this collaboration with GlomCon, the RPS is committed to promoting excellence in the diagnosis of glomerular disease and to bringing the breakthrough innovations in this field to the GlomCon community, which as of May 2019 represents more than 2200 clinicians and pathologists from 108 countries.

About RPS

The RPS promotes excellence in diagnosis, fosters basic, clinical and translational research, encourages training and education in renal disease, sponsors US based and international conferences and symposia, and brings news and updates pertaining to renal pathology to its members around the world.
