Basic/Clinical Science Session

Leveraging T Cells and Macrophages in Glomerular Diseases

November 10, 2019 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: 146 A/B, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

T cells and macrophages have taken a back seat during the development of targeted therapeutics for autoimmune and glomerular diseases. This session reviews recent advances in the understanding of T-cell and macrophage biology as they relate to autoimmune and glomerular diseases and the implications of using T-cell and macrophage biology to design new therapeutic approaches to glomerular disease.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe how T cells may be targeted to treat glomerular diseases
  • Explain how macrophages may be targeted to treat glomerular diseases

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Glomerular Diseases
  • Pathology
