Decoding diabetic kidney disease

Project description

Improved understanding of diabetic kidney disease

One of the main complications of diabetes is diabetic kidney disease (DKD), which in 20 % of the cases will progress to kidney failure. Patients with DKD present with complex and variable pathophysiology, suggesting that a personalised approach to treatment is needed. The limited therapy options available to date have driven scientists of the DECODE-DKD project, funded by the European Research Council, to study DKD pathophysiology and identify new drug targets. Researchers will employ a multi-omics approach to identify disease relevant pathways and provide detailed knowledge on the mechanisms. Moreover, the project will develop patient in vitro kidney organoids to screen various candidate compounds.
