53rd Annual Meeting of the Swiss Society of Nephrology (SGN-SSN)

09.12.2021 08:00 - 10.12.2021 17:00

Interlaken, Congress Center Kursaal Interlaken


COVID certificate mandatory & mask requested

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 53rd annual meeting of the Swiss Society of Nephrology in Interlaken.

The corona virus pandemic is still a challenge for all of us. Last year's congress had to be cancelled due to COVID regulations and we very much hope that with ongoing vaccination we will be able to meet in person this year.

The traditional CME course is not part of this year's annual meeting. It has been organized by the scientific committee in Aarau on 3rd and 4th of September 2021.

The satellite symposium for nurses will traditionally be held in parallel to the main program on Thursday 9th December 2021.

For the main program two speakers that were planned for last year's meeting are scheduled to address relevant clinical issues: Prof. Fadi Fakhouri (Lausanne) on the role of complement in glomerular diseases and Prof. Wim van Biesen (Gent) on transition to peritoneal dialysis. Prof. Thomas Fehr (Chur) will talk on SGLT2-inhibitors and their important role in non-diabetic kidney diseases. Dr. Christoph Stein (Heidelberg) will lecture on the microbiome, a field that is gaining more and more importance. The key lecture by Dr. Aitana Lebrand (Genf) will address the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in different fields in medicine. Finally, Dr. Urs Stoffel (FMH Olten) will discuss future cost models.

We are very happy to welcome the Young Nephrologists, our next generation of nephrologists and a key to the future of nephrology. This new group will present themselves on Thursday evening.

Come and join us for interesting discussions and networking!

Looking forward to seeing you in Interlaken,

Ann-Kathrin Schwarzkopf and Stephan Segerer

2nd SWISS PATHOLOGY DAYS 2021 - 87th ANNUAL CONGRESS OF THE SWISS SOCIETY OF PATHOLOGY 2021

06.11.2021 08:00 - 13:30

Interlaken, Congress Center Kursaal Interlaken


COVID certificate mandatory (QR-code)

 

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to warmly welcome you to the 87th Annual Meeting of the Swiss Pathololgy Society in Interlaken, or the 2nd Swiss Pathology Days. This year, the SSPath Committee has entrusted a team of young board certified pathologists and senior residents with the organization of the scientific program, an exciting opportunity we deeply appreciate.

The motto of this congress is "BE CURIOUS". From the very beginning of human life, curiosity drives us to cross borders. It is an important driving force for innovation and the acquisition of knowledge, both in medicine and in other areas of society. We hope that the scientific program will satisfy some of the ever-growing curiosity of the pathology community. We are proud to have struck a balance between national and international experts who, amongst other things, will update on new classifications, facilitate access to complex topics and provide an overview of the latest developments. The slide seminars will focus on the frozen section and will try to simulate its pace and working conditions. The latest developments in research will be showcased in the form of free presentations in the main program and poster sessions. We are also looking forward to discuss the newest developments in the field directly with our partners in industry.

If not forced otherwise by the pandemic situation, the conference will be held in the Kursaal Interlaken Congress Centre, an ideal venue for this purpose. We are all looking forward to making new personal contacts and deepening old friendships. The traditional gala dinner is the ideal opportunity to do so. However, as many of us also appreciate the flexibility of the virtual space, we are offering the slide seminars on Saturday as a hybrid event; it is thus possible to attend it both online and in person.

We are delighted to welcome you to Interlaken for an interesting and informative conference.

With warm regards, the Organizing Committee
Dr. med. Dominik Loiero; Dr. med. Jasmin Haslbauer; Dr. med. Kristof Egervari
Dr. med. Marie Maillard; Dr. med. Konstantin Bräutigam ; Dr. med. Antonio Rodriguez-Calero
