About this event:
You are cordially invited to attend this year’s annual scientific conference on Friday and Saturday the 12th and 13th of May at The Glenroyal Hotel in Maynooth, Co Kildare.
This year’s two day meeting will bring together a distinguished faculty of experts, both National and International, specialising in nephrology. This gathering of colleagues and affiliated disciplines provides a key forum for a broad range of topics to be addressed, to facilitate exchanges & interactions, offering insights into the latest breakthroughs in scientific research on kidney disease, state of the art lectures and updates on current clinical nephrology practice.
Friday morning will host an NCHD training event in POCUS renal scanning basics. This will be followed by an evening symposium which will begin at 17:00 with arrival from 16:00. Dinner will be from 19:30.
Our first annual society dinner since COVID will be held on the Friday night with drinks reception followed by four course meal in the Connaught Suite of the Glenroyal Hotel. Tickets are priced separately and partners are welcome. Dress smart casual.
The Saturday conference will have the full day scientific meeting schedule as per previous meetings with registration from 08:30.
The society has also reserved rooms at a discounted rate for those attending the meeting. Please call the hotel directly and reference the INS to get the approved B&B rate. We hope that this social aspect of the conference will help facilitate and foster networking with colleagues and professionals in the field which has been lacking in recent times. We very much look forward to meeting you there.
