IKMG - International Kidney and Monoclonal Gammopathy Research Group 2nd International Meeting La Rochelle, France, September 3-4, 2015 http://internationalkidneymonoclonalgammopathy.org Dear Friends and Colleagues, We would like to invite you to attend the second international IKMG meeting in La Rochelle which is taking place in September 2015. The goal of the IKMG is to promote research into, and understanding of, kidney diseases resulting from monoclonal gammopathies and we are very excited about the program our organizing committee has put together. We plan to include state of the art lectures on the pathology, diagnostics and treatment of monoclonal gammopathy-related kidney diseases presented by experts from around the world. A poster and plenary session will cover the latest advances in this evolving field. This meeting will hopefully stimulate exchanges between clinicians and researchers, and open up new perspectives for diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to the treatment of these rare disorders, through a better understanding of their pathophysiological mechanisms. Call for abstracts will be announced in May. La Rochelle is a very pleasant city located on the west coast of France. The meeting will be held at the Espace Encan, close to the old port in the historical city center, with a wide choice of hotels within walking distance. The social program will be a unique opportunity to discover the best local food. We look forward to meeting you in La Rochelle, Guy Touchard, Congress President Nelson Leung, IKMG President Online Registration and Hotel Reservation: http://reservation.larochelle-evenements.fr/event/registration?eventid=73&langue=UK Contact: Tiffany Barbier, La Rochelle Evenements, Quai Louis Prunier – BP 3106 17033 La Rochelle cedex 01, France Tel : (33) 5 46 45 91 43.
