Translational Nephrology

Objectives of the programme

The programme provides to graduates in medicine and life sciences relevant knowledge and insights into the basics of nephrology and kidney pathophysiology.
Participants will acquire and strengthen basic knowledge in pathophysiology of kidney disease by studying annotated online resources, clinical cases and key articles and test their progress with online quizzes and evaluations as well as face-to-face sessions with module leaders and tutors.
Thereby participants learn how to read critically articles and extract the most relevant information. Furthermore, they learn how mechanistic understanding of pathophysiology is derived from the investigation of clinical cases, studies and experimental models.
