Biomarkers of the Cardiorenal Axis

Dear Colleagues,

The pathophysiological links between diseases of the heart and the kidney stay in the focus of scientific interest. Our understanding of this interactions will be based on the consistent application of systems biology approaches. The cooperation between the German Diabetes Dialysis (4D) – Study and the Ludwigshafen Risk and Cardiovascular Health (LURIC) Study reflects these developments. Still more than 20 years after initiation of both studies, many scientific interactions have evolved between the contributing scientists.

Also in 2018, the meeting „Biomarkers of Cardiorenal Axis“ is intended to display the state of the biomarker research at the interfaces between Cardiology, Nephrology and Laboratory Medicine and related disciplines.

For the first time in 2018 and in cooperation with the support of Olink Proteomics, Uppsala, Sweden, we will be offering a satellite symposium on  addressing the use of the Proximity Extension Assay (PEA) in biomarker research on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. The number of participants in this event is limited. We therefore ask for early registration.

We hope to draw your interest with this program and would be excited about many many participants and good discussions.
