Welcome to SEPNWG
Welcome message

Dear colleagues and friends,

We are pleased to invite you to the International Pediatric Nephrology Association (IPNA) teaching course and the VIIth Meeting of the Southeastern Europe Pediatric Nephrology Working Group (VIIth SEPNWG), which will be held together in Bucharest, Romania, between 17 and 18 November 2017,

The main topic of the meeting will be: “Personalized genomics in Pediatric Nephrology: from the lab bench to the bedside.”

The purpose is to provide know-how on current views of personalized genomics of clinical importance, but also to review more familiar subjects in Pediatric Nephrology.

Besides, we aim to support the development of renal research and facilitate the delivery of high-quality healthcare in our countries

We hope that young doctors will take advantage of the many benefits this course will offer and they will use the information provided as a valuable resource for future development of their practice.

First SEPNWG meeting was in 2001 in Istanbul, and since then a beautiful group of Pediatric Nephrologists of the countries from Southeastern Europe formed scientific connections and friendships. We are convinced that this autumn in Bucharest those bonds will become even stronger and new ones will be created.

In addition to the scientific program, you will find that Bucharest is a lovely city to visit, a leading political, social and economic center of Romania. The capital city of the country was a meeting point for cultures throughout history, and you will find Roman, Greek, Turkish, Austrian, Hungarian and French influences. Also, many nearby regions in Romania offer you possibilities to explore and spend unforgettable days with your family, friends and colleagues.

We look forward to meeting all of you at our course.
