Dear ISRNM Members,​

I bring to your urgent notice, certain unfortunate developments that have transpired in the last three weeks in India vis-a-vis new government restrictions on Indian pharmaceutical company support of speakers and delegate/attendees to attend conferences and medical meetings such as ICRNM 2024. Such sponsorships are common in India. Consequently, these recent developments are likely to have a significant negative impact on delegate attendance and the financial viability of ICRNM 2024.


In view of these unfortunate circumstances, the local organizers have decided to cancel the 21st Congress of the International Society of Renal Nutrition and Metabolism, Hyderabad, India, August 27-31 2024 at HICC (ICRNM 2024), along with all the pre-Congress workshops, the Annual Conference of Indian Society of Renal Nutrition and Metabolism (SRNMCON 2024) and the 1st Annual Conference of the IAPEN INDIA RNI.


Sincerely yours,

Russ PricePresident, ISRNM
