What I would hope to achieve as an Ordinary Council Member I would like to apply for the position of Ordinary Council Member and I hope to help the Society with my background in both clinical nephrology and basic research aerea. I will serve the Society by lending my advisory skills to help and organize the ERA-EDTA Congress, Educational Meetings, and Research Strategies. Also, I will help and give suggestions to young Nephrologysts that desire to have an active role in the Society. Finally, I will actively partecipate to the Boards and give my contribution to the Society.
