Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It’s our pleasure to welcome you to Guangzhou for the 20th Congress of the International Society of Renal Nutrition and Metabolism (ICRNM). It’s an exciting time for the Society’s Congress to embrace its 40th anniversary as we continue to grow and adapt, remaining always motivated, open-minded and engaging.
The Congress is dedicated to disseminating the latest scientific advances in the field of renal nutrition and metabolism as they relate to patients with kidney diseases including chronic kidney disease (CKD), dialysis and acute kidney injury (AKI) and kidney transplant.
We’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect and what we hope to achieve during the Congress. As the oldest and foremost scientific organization, the Congress has assembled experts from a variety of branches, thus providing platform for all participants to network and learn about the cutting-edge thoughts. We aim at delivering the top-quality events for all participants, to make you feel at home while receiving valuable feeds.
Apart from attending all the events, we hope you will enjoy Guangzhou in warm April, a city with evergreen scenery and flowers blooming all year long. There are many famous attractions including Canton tower, Baiyun Mountain, Pearl River Night Cruise, Shameen, and lots of museums. I am sure that Guangzhou will be a friendly place to discuss science, to teach and learn and finally to meet old and new friends alike.
Before I close, I'd like to thank each of you for attending our conference and bringing your expertise to our gathering. I hope all of you will stay engaged, enjoy this Congress and your stay in GuangZhou! For us, it is a great pleasure to have you in Guangzhou for the 20th ICRNM Congress.
