Kidney — Control of Homeostasis
NEWSLETTER ::: NO. 15 ::: DEC 2017
DEAR
In December 2010, the first Kidney.CH newsletter was released. Since then two editions have been produced a year (always in June and December), each with a lead story and a portrait or interview, to inform the readership about the members, activities and progress of the NCCR. Although the paper version is very popular a digital version will now appear in parallel, which will be suitable for most mobiles and tablets, thereby taking into account the growing mobility of our readers.

Have fun while reading!
Yours, Jens Selige
