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

Development and validation of a renal risk score in ANCA-associated glomerulonephritis

Predicting renal outcome in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated glomerulonephritis (GN) remains a major challenge. We develop reliable predictors of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and validate a clinicopathologic score to predict renal outcome in ANCA-associated GN.

About the Speaker:

Prof. Thorsten Wiech, MD


Bio:

Pr Wiech graduated at Hamburg University, Germany and then completed the pathologist residency in Freiburg and nephropathology fellowships in Basel, Switzerland. In 2012 he became professor for renal pathology in Hamburg. His research focus is ANCA associated glomerulonephritis and complement in glomerular diseases.

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.
