AKI: Old and New Players

November 06, 2022 | 09:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Location: W311, Orange County Convention Center‚ West Building

Session Description

AKI is characterized by diverse pathophysiological processes, which often converge in inflammation and dysregulated metabolism. This session focuses on ongoing efforts by nephrologists and researchers to understand the molecular underpinnings of AKI.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss how neural circuits control kidney inflammation
  • Describe the functional significance of ferritin light chain in kidney injury
  • Explain how alterations in fatty acid oxidation affect AKI outcomes
  • Summarize the role of ferroptosis in AKI and highlight connections to metabolism and redox biology

Learning Pathway(s)

  • AKI and Critical Care
  • Kidney Biology and Physiology
