Basic/Clinical Science Session

Translation of Genetic Discoveries in Nephrotic Syndrome, Including the Michelle P. Winn, MD, Endowed Lectureship

November 03, 2023 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: Room 204, Pennsylvania Convention Center

Session Description

This session highlights innovative strategies, methodologies, and discoveries that have high potential for therapeutic or diagnostic translation in nephrotic syndrome. Particular emphasis is given to novel genetic discoveries in familial and nonfamilial forms of nephrotic syndrome. Innovative methods to expand our understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms of podocyte injury and dysfunction are also discussed. The session reviews novel approaches to the translation of genetic findings into potential therapies or diagnostics for the treatment of podocytopathy.

ASN gratefully acknowledges Duke University School of Medicine, the school’s Division of Nephrology, and several individuals for support of the Michelle P. Winn, MD, Endowed Lectureship.
Session support is provided by an educational grant from Travere Therapeutics, Inc.
