New insights into mechanisms of glomerular injury and repair from the 10th International Podocyte Conference 2014

Kidney Int. 2015 May;87(5):885-93. doi: 10.1038/ki.2015.5. Epub 2015 Feb 25.


Glomerular kidney diseases are a major cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Thus, it comes as wonderful news that glomerular research is advancing at a remarkable pace. Researchers from around the world met at the 10th International Podocyte Conference in Freiburg, Germany, to discuss the latest developments and findings in this innovative field of kidney research. The meeting highlighted the tremendous progress in our understanding of podocyte-related disorders and promised a rapid transfer of this knowledge into novel treatment options for proteinuric kidney diseases.
