Workgroup Immune Glomerulopathies

The immune-mediated glomerulopathies working group comprises a large group of experts both from adult and pediatric nephrology centers.

Our group is focussed on a particularly heterogenous group of diseases, with variable clinical, histological and biochemical features, frequently ill-defined causes and in some cases major extrarenal manifestations. This makes collaboration with other working groups within ERKNet and also belonging to other ERNs vital.

We aim to provide a platform for common research projects within this complex group of diseases, and advice and assistance from experts for colleagues caring for patients within all European countries.
