Deciphering intrarenal communication to unvail mechanisms of chronic kidney diseases

Project description

Feedback on chronic kidney disease

Kidneys play a critical role in maintaining good health, clearing excess water and waste from blood to prevent toxic build-up. To do this, each kidney has about a million tiny filtering 'units' comprising a glomerulus and a tubule. Scarring of kidney tissues is a hallmark of chronic kidney disease but the mechanisms are unclear. DIE_CKD researchers suspect a novel feedback pathway between the glomeruli and the tubules is involved in scarring of kidney tissue. Transgenic mice and human renal biopsies will help them test their hypothesis.
