Fields of research
The research interests are focussed on the mechanisms leading to acute and chronic renal failure. We are using two hereditary diseases, polycystic kidney disease and nail-patella syndrome, as model systems, which as the acquired forms affect the renal tubuli and the podocytes, respectively. A better understanding of the pathogenetic events should ultimately result in more rational and efficient therapies.
