Short biography


Prof. Covic started his clinical and research activity as a fellow in Nephrology in Manchester and Amiens. Later he performed clinical research at the Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio. He received a Ph.D. on cardiovascular abnormalities and its determinant factors in chronic renal failure in 1997. Since 2007, he is a FRCP (London) and became in 2009 a correspondent member of the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences. From 2011 he is also a Fellow of the ERA EDTA (FERA).

Prof. Covic is a Professor of Nephrology and Internal Medicine at the "Gr.T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, the Director of the Nephrology Clinic and the Dialysis and Transplantation Center in Iasi, Romania and Vice-Rector of the University of Medicine "Gr. T. POPA" Iasi, Romania.

Prof. Covic published more than 230 original and review papers in peer-reviewed journals, 11 books and 22 chapters.
He is an Associate Editor for NDT, and Editor in Chief (Nephrology) for the International Journal of Urology and Nephrology, and editor / reviewer for several prestigious journals.

His main areas of interest are: cardiovascular complications in renal disease, renal anaemia, CKD-MBD, peritoneal dialysis, and acute renal failure.

Prof. Covic is the president elect of Romanian Society of Nephrology and a board member of KDIGO, ERBP and ISN/COMGAN. He is also currently the Secretary of the ERA-EDTA working group EURECAM.
