The upcoming meeting on “Biomarkers of the Cardiorenal Axis (20 years LURIC and 4D)” will be held in Mannheim from Thursday, January 19, till Friday, January 20 in 2017. This meeting will focus on the pathophysiological links between diseases of the heart and the kidney. We will discuss recent results which have emerged from the LURIC and the 4D study, but will also attempt to place these findings into a broader context of vascular and renal disease. Further, we wish to emphasize those results that might have immediate practical implications to healthcare in plenary presentations.

The pathophysiological links between diseases of the heart and the kidney stay in the focus of scientific interest. Our understanding of this interactions will be based on the consistent application of systems biology approaches. The cooperation between the German Diabetes Dialysis (4D) - Study and the Ludwigshafen Risk and Cardiovascular Health (LURIC) Study reflects these developments. Various scientific interactions have evolved from these studies and beyond in recent years. Also in 2016, the meeting „Biomarkers of Cardiorenal Axis“ is intended to display the state of the biomarker research at the interfaces between Cardiology, Nephrology and Laboratory Medicine. We hope to draw your interest with this program and would be excited about many participants and good discussions.
