Developments in AKI and Repair Mechanisms

November 02, 2023 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: Room 201, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Tissue repair in AKI is a highly complex process underscored by conflicting metabolic demands, inflammation, and cell fate reprogramming. This session covers the rapidly developing story of adaptive and maladaptive repair mechanisms, a key concept involved in the AKI-to-CKD progression.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Define various cell states identified in human AKI and animal models
  • Discuss cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in tissue repair
  • Summarize advances in integration of multiomics data
  • Identify therapeutic strategies to control cell fate

Learning Pathway(s)

  • AKI and Critical Care
