Learning New Stuff

I have lived a busy meeting day with sessions on acute kidney injury (AKI) stretching from 8am until 7pm. I learned a lot; as I noted on twitter, friends and colleagues greeted me as follows:

Pascale, what are you doing here?

Photoxpress_2811259See, my research has focused on diabetic kidney disease and kidney growth. Most recently a project on kidney development has, well, developed. AKI was not in my repertoire.

It is now. Our clinical service needed work, and I needed to learn more. Today helped, although I must admit that my brain was full a couple of hours before we quit meeting for the day.

I have 2.5 more days of workshops and symposia. I hope to bring home lots of information to help my patients. I hope to be refreshed by the sight and scent of azaleas and other flowers in bloom.

And maybe next time I hit this meeting no one will ask why I’m here.

  1. Hi Pascale.

    I read that you have interests in AKI and is on a symposia these days. I have also interests in AKI, but as a investor in a company who has patent on a cuttoff value at the AKI.

    Is it posible that you will tell me who the producer are, maybe Biosite/Inverness or Abbott Labs?
