Emerging Therapeutic Approaches in AKI: New Targets and How to Reach Them

November 04, 2022 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: W308, Orange County Convention Center‚ West Building

Session Description

Despite advances in clinical care and understanding of the underlying pathophysiology, treatment for AKI remains a major unmet medical need. This session describes how novel therapeutic targets and nanoparticle-based strategies may change future AKI therapeutics.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the use of senolytic therapy to promote kidney repair
  • Evaluate the use of mitochondrial therapy for kidney injury
  • Discuss the application of nanotherapeutics in kidney biology
  • Examine the clinical potential of nanoparticles in AKI therapeutics
