At the fork of regeneration and nephron loss.
Our dynamic and international group thrives to understanding how the renal tissue can regenerate from injury and how malfunctional repair drives disease progression. We apply advanced intravital imaging techniques to track structural and functional changes in the injured and chronically diseased kidney at the single cell level over time.
We aim to identify novel mechanisms and pathways of renal tissue remodeling and translate this knowledge into new treatment strategies for chronic kidney disease. To achieve this goal, we combine multidisciplinary state-of-the-art techniques, including intravital 2-photon microscopy, tissue clearing, correlative microscopy, immunohistology, fluorescent activated cell sorting, sequencing techniques, and novel in vivo injury models.
We collaborate and interact with a number of renowned researchers at AU and internationally and affiliate with the MEMBRANE RESEARCH Theme at the Department of Biomedicine.
