Basic/Clinical Science Session

Vascularization and Innervation of the Kidneys

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

Location: 152, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Knowing how the kidney vasculature forms is essential to understanding kidney development. Innervation follows vascular development, resulting in tracks of blood vessels, lymphatics, and nerves within tissue. This session reviews the origins and differentiation of the vascular network within the kidneys and also covers bioengineering approaches to model key processes in vessel development in vitro. It also covers emerging understanding of the mechanisms by which the kidneys are innervated.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the origins and differentiation of the vascular and neural networks of the kidney
