Upcoming Conferences:

15th C3G/DDD Family Conference: October 15-17, 2020

Mark your calendars for October 15-17, 2020 as we have already started planning for the 15th  C3G/DDD Family Conference.

We will return to a familiar place for those who have been before, the Medical Education Research Facility (or as we all affectionately call it MERF).  We would love to hear your thoughts on the two day patient clinic with Drs. Nester and Smith; the Meet the Scientist event in the MORL lab; the kids’ room at the conference; and, as always, we welcome your thoughts on topic ideas for the agenda.

Once we have rested up from the 2019 conference, we will be ready to hit the ground running for 2020.

All the best,
Richard, Lynne, Jori and the MORL Renal Staff
Molecular Otolaryngology & Renal Research Laboratories
The University of Iowa
