Oh Where, Oh Where Have My Podocytes Gone?

November 20, 2016 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: W184

Session Description

Podocyte loss is a precursor to proteinuria and FSGS. New techniques have been developed to accurately quantitate podocytes in human and rodent glomeruli, which has provided opportunities to better correlate podocyte loss with glomerular malfunction. In addition, mechanistic studies have identified pathways that are protective for podocytes in the context of glomerular injury. This session addresses these topics.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. summarize the best methods, and their limitations, for quantitating podocytes; and 2. describe various mechanisms by which podocyte loss can be prevented or halted in the context of injury.
