RBK: Rebuilding the Glomerular Filtration Barrier by Regenerating Adult Podocytes

This project aims to rebuild kidney glomeruli by regenerating podocytes, terminally differentiated cells in the kidney glomerular filtering units that limit the passage of proteins from the blood into the urine, from two candidate resident stem/progenitor cells, cells of renin lineage (CoRL) and parietal epithelial cells (PECs).
