Basic/Clinical Science Session

Novel Roles of Channels and Transporters in Kidney Diseases and CVD

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

Location: Room 111, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

Channels and/or transporters in the kidneys and the cardiovascular systems play a significant role in maintaining BP and electrolyte balance. Functional alterations of channels and/or transporters will lead to different disease phenotypes.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the novel role of histamine receptors in ENaC regulation
  • Explain the new target of SGLT2 inhibitors in the heart
  • Examine the novel role of the Piezo1 channel in kidney fibrosis
  • Discuss the novel urea transporter role in cardiomyopathy in CKD

Learning Pathway(s)
