A Joint Venture Between GlomCon and the Renal Pathology Society

This new webinar series brings together two successful organizations with a common goal of improving and disseminating the knowledge of glomerular kidney diseases. The Renal Pathology Society promotes excellence in diagnosis and research and encourages training and education in renal disease to its members around the world. This series’ curriculum focuses on research in renal pathology and new technologies applied to renal pathology, including image analytics, machine learning, multi-‘omics, and computational pathology approaches to renal biopsy analyses. Through this collaboration with GlomCon, the RPS is committed to promoting excellence in the diagnosis of glomerular disease and to bringing the breakthrough innovations in this field to the GlomCon community, which as of May 2019 represents more than 2200 clinicians and pathologists from 108 countries.

Speakers

Dr. Samih H. Nasr. After graduating from Damascus University (Syria), Dr. Nasrcompleted his pathology residency and nephropathology fellowship at Columbia University, New York.  He then served on the faculty at McGill University and Columbia University. He has published over 165 manuscripts, focusing on paraprotein-related kidney diseases and glomerular diseases with organized deposits, including amyloidosis and fibrillary glomerulonephritis.

Dr. Jeffrey B. Hodgin received his PhD from the laboratory of Drs. Oliver Smithies and Nobuyo Maeda in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Pathology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in 2001, and his MD, also from UNC, in 2003. Dr. Hodgin completed residency training in Anatomic Pathology at Columbia Universi
