Life/2022 membrane symposium



In 2022 the Life/ nephrology campus continues to deliver educational opportunities with the Life/2022 membrane symposium in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, from September 06 – 08, 2022. This symposium will offer three days of medical-scientific exchange, dedicated to advancements in dialysis membrane science and its decisive role to achieve desired therapy outcomes. Make sure to register now as onsite participation numbers are limited to 90 in total.

As part of the continued effort to provide high-level medical-scientific education for the nephrology community, the Life/2022 membrane symposium will feature an in-depth scientific view of current knowledge, future trends and innovations for dialysis membranes and their potential to improve clinical outcomes for patients dependent on dialysis. Delegates will not only participate in expert-led lectures but will also be able to discuss clinical questions and current treatment controversies with the faculty in interactive round tables.

The Life/2022 membrane symposium is chaired by the Life/chairmen Prof. Dr. Christoph Wanner – University Hospital Würzburg, Germany – and Prof. Dr. Peter Stenvinkel – Karolinska Institutet Stockholm, Sweden – and empowered by Fresenius Medical Care Deutschland GmbH.
