Novartis is delighted to report on the second renal transplant cases program held in 2013. The program was initiated with the aim of fostering and sharing innovation, development and the highest standards in the understanding and clinical management of renal transplantation in Australia.

This initiative was developed as part of the Novartis commitment to encouraging interest and education in the practice of Transplant Nephrology. Entries for these awards were permitted from any RACP Nephrology Advance Trainee currently working in Australia.

The submitted case reports were judged by an independent panel of distinguished Transplant Nephrologists who selected the top seven case reports according to:

  • Scientific interest
  • Use of clinical acumen
  • Clear and concise presentation

We are delighted to sponsor the publication of the top seven cases, as chosen by the Panel, to be published in no particular order in this supplement of Nephrology.

Novartis looks forward to providing more innovative programs as part of its commitment to excellence in the practice and research within the field of transplantation.
