Basic/Clinical Science Session

Mediators and Protectors in AKI

October 25, 2020 | 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: Simulive

Session Description

AKI results from an interplay among the epithelial cell, the endothelial cell, other vascular cells, and inflammatory processes, along with abnormalities in renal energetics. This session presents newly discovered mechanisms and participants in AKI as well as pathways that mediate protection and promote recovery from AKI.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss newly discovered mechanisms of AKI
  • Describe the protective pathways in AKI
