May 14-18, 2022

This FASEB Science Research Conference (SRC) was first convened in 2019 with a focus on increasing and developing scientific interactions and collaborations across the bench-to-bedside divide. This forum is to help develop a pipeline of investigators trained to think in a more translational way about the problem of acute kidney injury (AKI).

This in-person conference brings together basic, translational, and clinical scientists—including trainees, early stage, and established investigators—from academia, industry, and government involved in acute kidney injury research.
