Enrichment Program

One of the main goals of this Pediatric Center of Excellence in Nephrology is to improve the understanding of kidney disease in children by promoting fundamental research efforts that will serve as the basis for new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Efforts towards the understanding of kidney disease are delayed by the need for more investigators in this research area and the lack of awareness of pediatric kidney research in the wider research community and the public. The Educational Enrichment Program is a key element in the Center with the vision to: inspire future new investigators in Pediatric Nephrology research, foster national and international sharing of ideas and research progress, foster integration and collaboration of investigators in the home institutions and engage and educate the wider community concerning research in Pediatric Nephrology.
