We’ve posted several times about the ‘Origins of Renal Physiology’ held in the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory every year. Fellows who have taken the course over the past 5 years have consistently raved about it, with many describing it as transformative in their careers as researchers, teachers and clinicians. It’s on again this year September 2-9, 2012.
This year for the first time, ‘Origins’ will be free for all renal fellows who are admitted to participate. The organizers are able to do this thanks to a five year R25 research education grant from the NIDDK/NIH. Lodging and meals are included, so the only costs to you are travel.
Applications are now being accepted; the application will close on April 15.Head over to the course website: www.mdibl.org/courses/The_Origins_of_Renal_Physiology/114/, for a description of the course and the online application form.
