What I would hope to achieve as an Ordinary Council Member Having served as a national society president in the past 8 years, I could follow the changes in
nephrology and the efforts of ERA-EDTA to adapt to this these challenges. I would like to support the President and the council of ERA-EDTA in strengthening the relationship with the National Societies.
In this respect, I consider of crucial importance to recognize regional similarities, as the basis for
cross-regional cooperation; and regional differences, helping us to appreciate each other’s
activities. My research on hypertension and cardiovascular diseases in CKD and after transplantation could help to build stronger relationships with other organisations and societies. Overall, we must not forget that ultimately, all our activities should be directed towards improving patient care.

During a “Humboldt” fellowship in Hannover, I have described the mechanism of nephrocalcinosis in children with XLH. I was member of the international group establishing normal values for 24h
ABPM. We have also established pediatric reference values for pulse wave velocity and evaluated
cardiovascular changes in uremic and transplanted children.We are also taking part in international registry studies (ERA-EDTA and ESPN registry, ESPN CKD-MBD working group). total number of papers 226, citations 2393 Hirsch index 26, g index 46

Contributions to the ERA-EDTA and/or to national/ international nephrology
From 1996 onwards, I’m training young nephrologists and PhD students at Semmelweis Univ. I’m
lecturer in CME courses (ESPN and IPNA). As president of the Hung. Soc. of N phrology I
participated in the elaboration of national guide-lines (aHUS, dialysis, transplantation), and in the
adaptation of the ERA-EDTA guide-lines into Hungarian. I’m editorial board member of Pediatric
Nephrology, Pediatric Transplantation, Kidney and Blood Pressure Research. I’m reviewer and
writing editorial comments for journals including Hypertension, Journal of Hypertension, NDT,
Transplant International. Together with the President of ERA-EDTA and the scientific committee I’m working hard – as the president of the congress – to make the 56th Congress in Budapest a success.
