Our group investigates epigenetic modifications in renal aging and chronic kidney disease. We work with transgenic mouse models and primary isolated cells to understand complex epigenetic signaling programs that regulate renal development, maintenance and disease progression aiming to identify novel targets to treat chronic kidney diseases and renal aging. We provide mouse models, cell lines and expertise on mouse work and epigenetic research to the groups within KIDGEM.
