Goal:  To provide a home for scientists studying the kidney, urinary tract, and their respective cells and vasculature, as well as the control of body fluid volume and composition.  Studies may involve human or animal models, individual cell types, and isolated membrane systems, using a wide range of approaches to the study of function in these systems, such as biochemistry, immunology, genetics, mathematical modeling, molecular biology, and physiological methodologies.  

Plans are underway for an exciting Renal Section Banquet in Chicago for EB2017! We have found a venue within walking distance of the convention center: The Field Museum, at 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive. Our event will be held from 6-10 pm Monday April 24, 2017 in the East Pavilion of the museum and we will have access to the “Inside Ancient Egypt” exhibit during this time. Tickets are available: $80 faculty, $40 for students/postdocs (see APS website for ticket purchase). Fundraising for the Renal Section remains challenging and we are very grateful for the support of our membership! Please consider a tax deductible donation at
