Evamaria Kinne-Saffran Lecture

The International Association for the History of Nephrology (IAHN) awards the Evamaria Kinne-Saffran Lecture in History of Medicine on the occasion of every conference. 

Evamaria Kinne-Saffran (1941-2002) was a vivid supporter of the value of interdisciplinary bridges and a convincing advocate of the importance of the past in understanding the present and predicting the future.

The lecture is aimed to support scientists, nephrologists interested in History and historians interested in Nephrology alike, who have recently made a major contribution to the field of Nephrology. The Lectureship covers the expenses (up to US $2,000) to attend the IAHN Congress and present a lecture at the Inaugural Ceremony.

We welcome nominations for this award all year round. The Scientific Committee will evaluate all nominations and then select the winner. Please send letter of nomination, CV of the candidate and all relevant information to the following email address: nominations@iahn.info.
