Presentations given by the KPMP consortium at the American Society of Nephrologists Kidney Week conferences.
Richard Knight, the current President of the American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) and co-chair of our community engagement working group (CEWG), discussing the impact of the CEWG on this project, with an emphasis on the specific influence from our patient representatives.
Dr. Robert Star, Director, Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) spoke about how precision medicine can advance nephrology.
Dr. Krzysztof Kiryluk took the stage to discuss charting a new course to define chronic and acute kidney diseases. He explained some of the problems with the current approaches to define these diseases, reviewed some of the available alternatives, and showed how these approaches informed the development of the KPMP clinical protocol and study design.
Dr. Ulysses Balis shows a glimpse of the future, demonstrating how the adoption of digital pathology and the integration of machine learning can influence the development and extend the impact of the KPMP’s kidney tissue atlas.
Dr. Laura Mariani walks the session attendees through several potential uses that are envisioned for the atlas, emphasizing the various functionality needed to support our different user communities – including patients, providers, and researcher scientists.
