State of the art - Kidney Transplantation: what the nephrologist needs to know

Dear Colleagues,
Despite tremendous improvement of the care of the kidney transplant recipients, during the last two decades, we are still daily facing important issues and sometimes difficult decisions in this patient population.
This State of the Art Symposium organised by the Belgi-an Society of Nephrology, intends to address these issues and to provide the nephrologist with accurate and
up-to-date information.
Discussion after each presentation will be encouraged.
We are looking forward to welcome you during
this symposium.
Prof. Dr. Jean-Louis Bosmans
Dr. Steven Van Laecke
