Molitoris, Past President of American Society of Nephrology; Dr. Sharon Anderson, Past President of American Society of Nephrology; Dr. Ellie Kelepouris, Chief of Nephrology, Drexel University College of Medicine, USA; Dr. Jing Zhou, Director, Polycystic Kidney Disease Research, Brigham Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, USA; Dr. GiovambattistaCapasso, President of Italian Society of Nephrology, Scientific Director of BioGem, Naples, Italy; Dr. Philip Kam-Tao Li, President of International Society of Peritoneal Dialysis, Hong Kong Chinese University, Hong Kong; Dr. TakMao Daniel Chan, Chief of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong; Dr. Rienzi Diaz Navarro, Medical Director, Department of Medicine, University of Valparaiso, Chile;Dr. HuiyaoLan, Director of inflammatory diseases research, Chinese University of Hong Kong;Dr. JunwenJohnWang,Associated Professor of Gene Research Center, Department of Medicine, University of Hong Kong, and over 30 renowned nephrologists from all over China.

The meeting was comprised of plenary lecture sessions, attendee-faculty group discussions, and informal networking during several coffee breaks and buffet lunches.

There were a total of 985 registrants. The attendees were from all over the country, including remote areas such as Yunnan, XinJiang and Mongolia.

The general lecture sessions provided translational lectures offering reviews of recent advances of clinically relevant topics on renal physiology, pathophysiology of electrolyte alterations, HTN, CKD, RRT and kidney transplant. Topics also addressed the problems associated with the growing epidemic of obesity and metabolic syndrome.

Lectures integrated basic science knowledge, key concepts and clinical approaches, from genetics, cell biology and renal physiology to diagnosis and treatment. Each lecture provided critical, clinically applicable points including lecture-ending summary and post-lecture Q&A sessions.

The slides for each lecture were projected side-by-side in English and Chinese. In addition, we implemented live English and Chinese translations for all lectures. Each lecture was given 20 minutes with 10 minutes for answering questions. We were delighted to see that there were many questions following each lecture. The entire conference was filled with a scholarly atmosphere. The discussions were full of excitement as some of the greatest minds in the field exchanged their ideas, challenged each other’s beliefs, refined their theories and arguments as well as adopted new ideas from their colleagues.

Meet the Faculty sessions allowed small groups of audiences to interact with faculty in an informal setting to promote networking and information exchange. The audiences and faculty were matched ahead of the meeting (by the organizing committee) in their mutual clinical interest and research areas. Our faculty was with a variety of backgrounds and career paths in the field of nephrology, medicine and renal physiology. They provided teachable insights for attendees with their specific interests. The effectiveness of such sessions was reflected by the overwhelming positive feedback from the participants.

Attendees were given the post-conference survey; approximately 95% of the surveys were returned. We confirmed that the attendees were from all over China. Of the attendees, 83% were from large (first level) hospitals and 13% were from medium-sized (second level) and small (third level) hospitals. The quality of all speakers were rated highly, an average score of 4.85 (on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the best). Of those who attended, 98.5% considered this annual meeting highly educational and important for their clinical practice and research.

Based on the survey results and overall feedback, we believe the Forum has increased knowledge levels considerably for the attendees and exerted a positive impact in Nephology practices as well as research throughout China. The educational value was high.

The organizers of the Forum prepare to organize the 5th Nephrology Update West Lake Forum in the spring of 2016 in Hangzhou. We hope to see you there. We sincerely appreciate the strong support from ISN, ASN and Biomedical Engineering Society of Zhejiang Province !
