Our Team

A board of directors, a core group of advisors, executive directors, faculty educators, investigators, fellows, interns, and administrators are the driving force behind GlomCon. This team designs and executes initiatives, collaborates on research and educational activities, and helps shape the mission of GlomCon.

The background of our team is diverse and includes an international group of academic and private practice nephrologists, nephropathologists, scientists, and trainees. Like many other medical and research initiatives, we too believe that a close collaboration between clinicians, patients, scientists, and industry can drive meaningful progress in diagnosing and treating patients with complex diseases.

GlomCon has no paid employees and all work in a volunteer capacity.

The Vanguards

This core leadership group formulates GlomCon’s vision and, through their leadership, designs and executes ideas that are at the heart of GlomCon’s mission. They collaborate closely with workgroup and committee members, GlomCon’s board, faculty educators, clinical and scientific advisors.
