The ERA Fellowship Program is an excellent opportunity for all young European nephrologists who are interested in enhancing their knowledge and advancing their careers. I had the chance to join this program, and I am very grateful for all the enriching experiences that brought me.
ERA has had a significant impact on both my career and education. The resources, opportunities, and networking platforms provided by ERA have been instrumental in my professional growth.
ERA Fellowship has allowed me to expand my knowledge and gain essential skills necessary to carry out research activities in the field of genetic diseases. I had the opportunity to work with international foremost experts and researchers and to learn from them how to properly lead scientific research.
ERA influences my daily work primarily through education. By watching regular webinars with experienced experts in the field and accessing the best nephrology journals, I gain very valuable knowledge in nephrology. I plan to apply for a clinical fellowship abroad, which ERA also offers.
The ERA fellowship program in paediatric nephrology and clinical epidemiology has provided me with the specialized training and experience necessary to advance my career in this field.
Training gave me the opportunity to rise to a new professional level, work with leading experts in the field, acquire important professional partnership connections, and taught me how to choose the right sources and formats for education and continuous development.

The ERA fellowship allowed me to collaborate with one of the foremost experts in my field, which was an amazing learning experience, in addition to being very productive, resulting in a number of joint publications.
During my ERA fellowship, I had a chance to investigate how diet adherence and healthy lifestyle have impact on outcomes in patients receiving hemodialysis using the data from DIET-HD study, a multicenter, multinational, prospective, cohort study that was primarily designed to evaluate the association between diet and adverse outcomes in adults treated with long-term
Considering that ERA is a very authoritative and representative nephrology association not only in Europe but throughout the world, the ERA National Societies Grant is certainly a significant achievement for my career and it already takes pride of place in my CV.
The ERA National Grant gave me the opportunity to attend the 60th Congress in Milan. Attending lectures by leading scientists in their field was a unique chance for me to expand my knowledge and I had also the opportunity to present my scientific work.
The recognition from the ERA created a lot of visibility and allowed me to join the ERA Immunonephrology Working Group (IWG) where we actively foster education, communication, research interests and promote scientific networking.
ERA National grant initiative stimulates young members to become an active member of the nephrology society and contributes to the development of their career.

The ERA National Grant is a recognition of my work by the most important European society in the field of Nephrology. As I aim to pursue my scientific career in Nephrology, this grant holds significant value and deserves a place on my CV.
Since receiving the ERA Eberhard Ritz Award, I have been invited to speak at international meetings, have progressed to more influential roles within international research groups, taken on a new editorial position and successfully obtained funding for a new research programme.
The Stanley Shaldon Award was very important for my career. In the meantime, I have received three calls to the position of Full Professor and Clinic Director for Nephrology.
I met brilliant minds in Nephrology, doctors, nurses, psychologists who are still very eager to share their experience and to help improve our practice for children. What I have earned by participating at this program will continue to benefit my career for a long period of time.

With the support of the ERA Fellowship, I have been able to broaden my knowledge and acquire the fundamental abilities needed to do research in the field of nephrology, particularly in the peritoneal dialysis department.
The ERA fellowship program has had a significant impact in my career and education. Since my arrival back to my home institution, I feel more confident, but also inspired and motivated to apply the knowledge and skills I gained to my clinical everyday practice.
Receiving the ERA Award has accelerated my career and expanded my professional network. It has led to new collaborations, increased my visibility within European nephrology, and helped me with securing grant funding.

I’ve learned the technique of bone biopsy and an approach to interpret bone histomorphometry. I have learned how the whole circuit is necessary to create a bone biopsy process. I have also learned how to set up a high-level research Project.
