BACKGROUND

Renal pathology is an exciting and challenging discipline. Patients with renal disease encompass a broad spectrum of medical conditions that are frequently complex and multisystem in nature. The last 15 years have witnessed an explosion of new insights into the cause of kidney disease fueled by advances in molecular diagnostics, such as genetic screening, transcriptomics, and proteomics.
We are today in an era of personalized medicine in which more precise mechanism-based diagnosis is fostering the design of targeted therapies in the individual patient. Only the continued partnering of pathologists and nephrologists can meet the challenge of integrating molecular diagnostics into pathogenesis-based therapy.

The "Symposium on Renal Pathology" is an intense four-day course, that will take place in Bergamo from 8-11 May, 2017. The course is designed for pathologists, nephrologists, internists, and residents in these specialities interested in an update on advances in pathophysiology and diagnosis of renal diseases.
The format will include lectures by the prominent experts in the field of clinical nephrology, renal pathology and glomerular biology, question-and-answer sessions and the study of case problems. Two interactive microscopy sessions, entirely dedicated to the review of biopsy cases, will also be part of this course program.

At the conclusion of the symposium, the attendants will be able to illustrate the histopathological characteristics of both frequently occurring and rare renal diseases, generate an appropriate differential diagnosis and make correct clinical-pathologic correlations.

ECM Accreditation

The Mario Negri Institute is seeking approval from the Regione Lombardia to provide ECM credits for the scientific programme of the symposium. More detailed information will become available here prior to the event.

VENUE

The Clinical Research Center for Rare Diseases "Aldo e Cele Daccò" is located in Ranica (Bergamo) at "Villa Camozzi", and since 1992 the center is dealing with promoting and treatment of rare diseases. The Villa is entitled to Mr. and Mrs. Aldo and Cele Daccò for their generous donation that allowed the Mario Negri Institute for Pharmacological Research to completely restore Villa Camozzi.

The Daccò Center is a unique example of an institution capable of establishing all necessary steps of a clinical research project. To this aim, scientists and professionals like physicians, biologists, bioengineers, nurses, biostatistics, computer technicians, work closely together to evaluate the health status of patients, to monitor and collect the data derived from clinical studies, to elaborate these information to ultimately determine the efficacy of possible new therapeutic strategies.
