Kidney diseases

The research concentrates on studies based on human cells and tissues, and it follows two major lines.

Firstly, we study the cellular base for the wounded kidney’s re-generative capacity. Secondly, we conduct tumour biological research on kidneys. Of special interest is clear cell kidney cancer in which the cellular metabolism follows an idiosyncratic pattern. By mapping this meticulously, we gain knowledge and support the identification of new, potential treatments.
