Basic/Clinical Science Session

Lipid Metabolism in Diabetic Kidney Disease

November 17, 2016 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W178

Session Description

This session elucidates current new knowledge for the role of lipids and fatty acid in the development of glomerular and tubular cell damage leading to diabetic kidney disease (DKD) development and progression. Specifically, it reviews novel mechanisms utilized by fatty acids and other lipids to alter glomerular and tubular cell function.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe the importance to study lipid metabolism as it relates to pathophysiology and progression of CKD; 2. explain the mechanisms by which cholesterol esterification can cause renal cell damage; 3. discuss the importance of unbiased metabolomic approaches to study the pathogenesis of DKD; and 4. summarize the relationship of VEGF to lipid metabolism in kidney cells.

Session Acknowledgements
