Basic/Clinical Science Session

Hope on the Horizon: Novel Therapeutics for Glomerular Disease, Including the Michelle P. Winn, MD, Endowed Lectureship

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

Location: Ballroom A, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Validated therapeutic targets for glomerular disease are lacking with no clinically available therapies approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Recent advances in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of glomerulopathies has raised the prospect of therapeutic drug development. This session covers recent promising discoveries that augur well for novel treatment options.
