Call for abstracts

On the occasion of our annual meeting, we would like to invite young clinical researchers and patients to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.

The poster session will serve to inform other clinicians, researchers and patients about relevant projects on rare kidney diseases.

ERKNet Research TF will select the 10 best abstracts from all submitted. We would like to offer these researchers and patients the opportunity to present their work in a 5 to 8 minute in a plenary session on May 11th from 2:00 - 3:30 pm. 

In addition, posters will be mounted in the foyer of the conference and will be available for personal discussions during the coffee and tea breaks. The posters will remain visible in the poster area throughout the conference.
