Training & Education

Education and training for future kidney research scientists and kidney care experts is one of KRC’s tasks. We host regular research seminars that given by invited physicians and scientists who are experts in patients’ care and kidney research to KRC staff and students. Our faculty members in KRC also teach graduate students, medical students and trainees in the division of Nephrology and Hypertension by means of open classes, grand rounds, clinical services, and journal clubs. We also provide trainings on laboratory techniques, research strategies to students and interested parties. Upcoming educational seminars and invited speakers series are listed at the end of this page.

KRC faculties and staff also welcome graduate students and postdocs who are interested in exploring the mystery of kidney physiology and pathology, developing scientific rational and critical thinking, to persuade basic, translational and clinical research on kidney diseases.
