The Kidney Cancer Association (KCA) presents the International Kidney Cancer Symposium, an opportunity for physicians, researchers, academics, and industry professionals from across the globe to join together and exchange ideas that will direct the future of kidney cancer research and treatment in the ultimate pursuit of a cure.

There are two symposiums each year, both held in person and made accessible online for virtual attendees. IKCS: North America is held in the fall and IKCS: Europe is held each spring.

IKCS meetings are a front-row seat to emerging research, noteworthy breakthroughs, current challenges, and promising treatments in kidney cancer. The community feel promotes learning, networking, and unparalleled opportunities for mentorship and collaboration.

The Kidney Cancer Association was founded in 1990 by Eugene P. Schonfeld and a small group of patients and doctors in Chicago, Illinois and has grown into an international non-profit organization. The KCA promotes scientific advances through two annual research symposia and a robust grant program, participates in legislative advocacy, and seeks to be a source of education and resources for patients, caregivers, and anyone impacted by kidney cancer.

Our vision is to be the universal leader in finding the cure for kidney cancer.

Our mission is to be a global community dedicated to serving and empowering patients and caregivers, and leading change through advocacy, research, and education.
