American Society of Onconephrology

We have come a long way in the last 13 years. The origins  of this field can be traced back to 2005 when the first book on this topic was released by Eric Cohen et al. The field of oncology has continued to rapidly evolve since then, and the advent of tyrosine kinase inhibitors, chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy, and immunotherapy has further necessitated the development of this new subspecialty. Onconephrology has since become its own rapidly-growing subspecialty. As many of you know my passion for this field has been evident on my blog for the last decade. With the help of the amazing founding members team, this organization was created this fall of 2021.

The mission is to promote research, clinical activities, and education related to onconephrology. 

More specifically, the primary objectives of this society shall be to further the investigation of onco-nephrology and reach a better understanding of the basic mechanisms involved as follows:
By informal group discussion of material that is of cross disciplinary interest as it pertains to care of patients with kidney disease and cancer.
By exchange of ideas pertaining to clinical experiences and experimental research
By consideration of problems encountered in onco-nephrology research. 
By the promotion of good fellowship and mutual trust among members of this organization.
By fostering education and identifying gaps in knowledge as it pertains to onconephrology.

Membership will be soon available. Let's welcome the beginning of the next phase of this field in nephrology.
