Renal Physiology: Structure and Function in Kidney Health and Disease (Kidney Week 2022)
This Early Program provides an overview of the structure and functions of the kidneys and details about the major structural compartments of the kidney, including the renal vasculature, glomeruli, tubules, and interstitium. These compartments are discussed at the ultrastructural and molecular levels. Additional discussion includes the functions of these compartments and how they link to structure. Further, integrated functions of the kidneys that lead to the maintenance of body homeostasis are covered.
