4-5 Mai 2018, Seeheim-Jugenheim
On Friday-Saturday, May 4-5 2018, the kick-off meeting of the Transregional Collaborative Research Center TRR219 took place in Seeheim-Jugenheim/Hesse.
Besides lectures relating to the topic “Mechanisms of Cardiovascular Complications in Chronic Kidney Disease” by expert speakers from research, industry, politics, patient organisations and society, the participants from the Saarland University and University Hospital RWTH Aachen were offered the opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas about the ongoing projects and increase consortium cooperations.
The meeting marked the start of an initially 4-year DFG-funded cooperation of the two universities to investigate the multi-factorial aspects of chronic kidney disease-related cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
We thank Bayer, Novo Nordisk, Boehringer Ingelheim and Sanofi for the financial support in organizing this meeting.
