The Asian Pacific Society of Nephrology aims to promote and encourage the advancement of scientific knowledge and research in all aspects of nephrology, and to promote the exchange and dissemination of this knowledge in the Asian-Pacific area. It has close links with all regional national societies of nephrology, and with the International Society of Nephrology (ISN).The APSN aims to cater specifically for the needs of the Nephrology community throughout the region, especially fostering the development of high quality nephrology in the less well developed countries of the region.
A Message from the President October 2014
In conjunction with the Japanese Society of Nephrology (JSN), APSN co-hosted a very successful CME meeting in Japan in early July 2014. JSN has been a very generous supporter of APSN-CME over the years. The CME committee, under the leadership of Masaomi Nangaku is planning other CME activities, either hosted both in developed and developing countries. Once some technical impediments have been overcome, it is planned to start populating APSN’s website with CME and other resources.
The President of the next Asian Pacific Congress of Nephrology, Paulo Ferrari, and his team have made substantial progress in their plans for the next Congress to be held in September 2016 in Perth. The Program Committee is planning an exciting scientific program with many high-level international speakers, and hopefully a Nobel laureate or two. It is a meeting that you won’t want to miss!
President, APSN 2013-2016
