Opinions of Lecturers

1. All praise for KARNEF, 2019. The congress was held in a pleasant atmosphere, in Ribarska Banja. The congress hall was equally comfortable for both the lecturers and the listeners. The timetable was maximally respected, and most importantly, there were many quality and interesting lectures.

This was a great opportunity to exchange professional experience with colleagues from our country and abroad.

Once again, all praise for the organization of such a large gathering, and I hope to continue the cooperation next year as well.

2. I think that this year, as well as many previous ones, the Congress of Cardionephrology and Hypertension deserves a high scientific assessment and all praise, above all, for carefully selected current topics in this field. We are witnesses that many of the latest basic and experimental tests in cardionephrology are not far from being used in clinical practice today, which is very important in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with chronic kidney disease, as well as primary heart failure complicated by renal failure. Recent genetic research in this area, as well as pathophysiological mechanisms, have provided new insights that provide an opportunity for better treatment and timely diagnosis of patients with cardiorenal or renocardial syndrome. This year, too, we had the opportunity to hear lectures by colleagues and eminent experts from abroad, which is especially important and educational for young doctors, clinicians, but also young scientists who deal with basic science.

From the very beginning of its existence, this Congress has nurtured a multidisciplinary approach, the cooperation of experts of various profiles, both in basic science, on the one hand, and clinicians, nephrologists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, on the other hand. Educational seminars that dealt with current topics in cardionephrology gave a special stamp to this year's gathering and confirmed, once again, its quality and the need to continue to nurture continuity in monitoring scientific knowledge in the field of cardionephrology.

Ribarska Banja is a beautifully chosen environment for this event. Thanks again Prof. Sonja Radenković on the great energy and effort she invests every time to organize this gathering, and above all on carefully selected current topics.

6. An exceptional group of top professionals from whom much could be heard and learned. There is a noticeable increase in the reputation and significance of each subsequent event. The enthusiasm and energy of Professor Radenković around the organization and realization of the whole event are truly admirable.

I wish you continued success.

With respect,

Prof. Tanja Pejčić


9. The gathering was good, the lectures at a high level, maybe we should have a little more listeners (which is easy to say, but the reality ...). Ribarska Banja is one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Serbia.

14. Dear prof. Radenkovic,

Thank you once again for your hospitality in the beautiful Ribarska Banja and a warm welcome.

Congratulations for the excellent program of the KARNEF congress and top lecturers.

I hope that my participation has contributed to the quality of Carnef.

Thanks again for everything !!

Best regards,

16. This year's Congress of Cardionephrology reiterated its success from previous years, both on carefully selected topics and on the topicality of the data presented by basic participants, molecular biologists, geneticists, and clinicians, eminent teachers from the country and abroad. The invaluable benefit of such a gathering is precisely multidisciplinarity. Hence the interest of the participants in the gathering to come again in the coming years.

I am of the opinion that the tradition of this Congress should not be interrupted, despite the various difficulties that prof. Radenkovic is lucky during the preparations for its maintenance. Once again, sincere congratulations to prof. Radenković on the exceptionally good organization and management of the Congress and the selection of lecturers, as well as the appeal to the authorities to show empathy and understanding for the necessity of holding this Congress in the future as well.

Best regards,

Prof. dr sc. med. Zorica Rašić-Milutinović

Next time I'll try to stay longer.
