Dear colleagues & friends,

Greetings from New Delhi!

On behalf of Organizing committee, I invite you to join us for the International Update on Renal & Transplantation Pathology (IURP 2020) which will take place from February 15th through 16th 2020, at Hotel Radisson Blu, (Near IGI aerocity) New Delhi, preceded by a pre-conference workshop on February 14, 2020, at National Reference Laboratory, Dr Lal PathLabs, Rohini, Sector – 18, New Delhi, India.

The theme for IURP 2020 is “Transgressing Boundaries and nurturing excellence”; and true to our commitment we have invited stalwarts from most reputed institutions across the globe, and designed the curriculum to entice young minds to delve deeper towards achieving excellence in this fascinating specialty.

The meeting will offer a carefully designed combination of workshops, debates, and a series of thought-provoking symposia & didactic lectures. The rich mix of educational experiences includes discussions on burning topics in Renal & Transplantation Pathology and a competitive poster session where delegates can present their work to distinguished national and International faculty members. An online quiz for registered delegates will be conducted on the conference website: www.iurp2020.com, and the winners will receive travel grants to attend the conference.

For the beginners and young faculty members, we have a carefully designed pre-conference hands-on workshop which will provide insights in to establishing world class Renal Pathology and Immunopathology/HLA laboratories & hands on exposure to Digital Pathology in one of the largest and most advanced Renal Pathology laboratories in the world at National Reference Laboratory of Dr. Lal PathLabs, New Delhi.

The weather in New Delhi will be pleasant during mid-February and you may require light woollens during evenings.

I personally look forward to your participation in this event and assure you that we will leave no stone unturned to ensure a memorable academic feast!
