Basic/Clinical Science Session

Novel Regulators of Renal Tubular Transport

November 08, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 146 C, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Recent studies have shed light on factors that play strong roles to influence renal and cellular transport, but that, until recently, had not been carefully studied. This session highlights the roles of these novel players in renal physiology, focusing on the role of the circadian clock in renal function, new insights into regulators of renal transporters, and newly appreciated roles of the pro-renin receptor.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the role of circadian rhythm in regulating sodium transport
  • Discuss novel players in the regulation of renal transporters
  • Describe novel roles for the pro-renin receptor
