    Frontiers Meetings

    It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the ISN Frontiers Meeting 2019 taking place in Gothenburg, Sweden on October 3 to 6, 2019. The meeting focuses on CPR - Cardio-Pulmonary-Renal Interactions and their Interdependence in Disease’. The 2019 ISN Frontiers meeting focuses on topics that have overlapping interests across the three specialties: nephrology, cardiology and respiratory medicine and aims for the first time to bring the study and understanding of the three organs’ systems together in terms of the epidemiology, physiology, pathophysiology, their inter-connections and therapeutics, with the kidney being the ‘centerpiece’ linking the three organs. We look forward to welcoming you to the ISN Frontiers Meeting 2019 in Gothenburg.

    Cardio-pulmonary-renal interactions and their interdependence in disease

    The 2019 Frontiers meeting will be a true cross-disciplinary event, bringing together professionals working in nephrology, cardiovascular and respiratory medicine. Cardio-renal syndrome describes the interrelationship between the heart and kidneys. However, the link between diseases involving the heart, lungs and kidneys requires investigation to unravel potentially common pathophysiological mechanisms. Thus, the global nephrology, cardiology, critical care medicine and respiratory medicine communities must jointly collaborate to better understand the interactions among kidney, heart and pulmonary disease so to improve and facilitate the management of patients with diseases involving these organs.

    ISN Frontiers meetings build on the success and achievements of the ISN Nexus and Forefronts series, bringing together basic scientists, clinicians and practitioners in a unique setting. This new event format will make more cutting-edge science available to a global audience, breaking down cross-regional barriers in accessing the latest knowledge and expertise.

    About Gothenburg

    Gothenburg has been an international city since it was founded in 1621. Today, the city blends a distinct feeling of charm with the pulse of modern urban life and creative atmosphere. High quality of life, a solid infrastructure and basic access to healthcare and education continuously attract a steady number of people to this region; leading the way towards becoming a truly sustainable and interconnected city. The city is in the middle of an exciting period of infrastructural and content development and is also filled with flourishing gardens, historic sites and buildings, and magnificent.

ISN Frontiers meeting 2019

ISN Frontiers Gothenburg 2019 is a cross-disciplinary meeting bringing together clinicians, scientists and epidemiologists working in nephrology, cardiovascular and respiratory medicine.

Cardio-renal syndrome describes and classifies the various interrelationships between the heart and the kidneys.  However, the link between diseases involving the heart, the lungs, and the kidneys requires investigation to unravel potentially novel and common pathophysiological mechanisms.

Through an interactive and high-quality scientific program, this meeting will:

  • Present the latest cutting-edge science and innovation in kidney-heart-lung function and disease
  • Increase awareness and recognize the interactions among the kidneys, the heart, and the lungs that can impact the development of systemic disease and co-morbidities
  • Cultivate and develop novel concepts in the pathogenesis of kidney disease and its related complications associated with chronic kidney disease and transplantation in a wider context
  • Foster cross-disciplinary research collaborations to further our understanding of the important connections between the kidneys, the heart, and lungs
  • Stimulate new hypotheses for translational research and identify opportunities and targets for developing new therapeutics
  • Encourage a more holistic view and approach to diseases affecting the three organ system

 Through a better understanding of the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms linking the kidneys, heart, and lungs, ISN Frontiers Gothenburg 2019 hopes to shift the disease paradigm to identify new disease pathways, and potentially novel treatment targets for more effective therapies in renal disease, and its frequent cardiac and pulmonary co-morbidities.
