The National Course for Renal Fellows: Origins of Renal Physiology (August 27 – September 3, 2017), is filling up fast.
This 1 week course provides a strong foundation in renal physiology for future renal investigators, teachers and clinicians.
Join 28 of your colleagues from around the country at the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratories for this highly rated, transformational course.
Origins of Renal Physiology is entirely unique among national renal short courses. The course provides participants with research tools that give them a deeper understanding of concepts of physiological homeostasis which is difficult to attain during normal clinical training schedules.
In this course, trainees will perform experiments involving both classical physiological models, as well as modern reductionist approaches and confocal microscopy to follow trafficking of transporter proteins in cultured cells.
In addition to the curriculum itself, fellows will benefit from close interactions with senior investigators in renal physiology, who will guide them through the performance of the experiments, share meals with them in the dining room, and take the time to discuss their career goals with them. In addition, fellows will benefit enormously by working closely with other fellows from different programs, and sharing their insights into renal research.
The course is organized around several laboratory modules and one enrichment module in Responsible Conduct of Research. Participants will complete three of the rotations over the six-day course. The first day of each rotation involves intensive experimental work, and the second day involves analysis and presentation of the work to the entire conference group.
Note: This is a fantastic opportunity. Don’t even think twice about it. SIGN UP and GO!!! I would go back in a heartbeat. Matt Sparks (2008 Alum)
