What I would hope to achieve as an Ordinary Council Member Nephrology first! – To increase the awareness of the ERA-EDTA in the medical profession and and
in the general public through national and European initiatives. Make nephrology great again! – To
ensure that nephrology continues to be an attractive discipline for young doctors. To work towards
the establishment of a “European Kidney Biopsy Registry” to maximally exploit the clinical and
scientific use of archival renal biopsies. This task will also be based on our local experience with the
Norwegian Kidney Biopsy Registry (founded in 1988).
