The International IgA Nephropathy Network will hold the 16th International Symposium on IgA Nephropathy 21–23 September 2021 and George Clinical scientific leader Professor Jonathan Barratt will present a key presentation during the first plenary session of the event.
Barratt, the Mayer professor of renal medicine at the University of Leicester, will present “RNA Interference in IgAN” on the first day of the conference which will be held virtually. The main topics of the symposium will be pathogenesis, pathology and treatment of IgA nephropathy. Special attention will be paid to discussing various pathogenetic mechanisms of IgA nephropathy targeted in ongoing randomized controlled trials. The network believes that with the expansion of therapeutic options, the outcome of patients with progressive IgA nephropathy will significantly improve. In addition to professional lectures and satellite symposia, there will also be poster sessions dedicated to the original communications. Partners such as George Clinical may also participate through a virtual exhibition. Register for the symposium here.
