Support the Detlef Schlöndorff Fellowship Fund

The ISN is pleased to announce that it will be naming an ISN Fellowship in honor of Detlef Schlöndorff, MD, who died in October 2019.

Detlef Schlöndorff was a prolific renal investigator for over five decades and active in multiple leadership roles within the ISN, including as editor in chief of the Kidney International (KI). In 2019, he was awarded the ISN Jean Hamburger Award in recognition of his outstanding research in nephrology with a clinical emphasis. He trained and mentored over 50 fellows from around the globe, including some of the current world leaders in academic nephrology.

To honor and sustain Detlef’s commitment to training fellows, ISN invites donations to the Detlef Schlöndorff Fellowship fund, which will provide training to one physician per year from a low-resource country with the ultimate goal of improving the standards of care in the Fellow’s home country upon their return and to help them become a leader in their field.

You can donate to the Detlef Schlöndorff Fellowship fund by PayPal. If you would like to donate by check or wire transfer, please contact Thomas Jacob, ISN Fellowship Program Coordinator, by email at
