Presented by Professor David Nikolic-Paterson, Head, Chronic Kidney Disease and Transplantation Research Group, Centre for Inflammatory Diseases, Monash University
Head, Laboratory Research, Department of Nephrology, Monash Health
This presentation will discuss signalling pathways in inflammation, cell death and fibrosis in the context of acute and chronic kidney disease. In addition, a new pathway of macrophage to mesenchymal transition in renal fibrosis will be described.
Dr David Nikolic-Paterson is Head of the Chronic Kidney Disease and Transplantation Research Group in the Centre for Inflammatory Diseases at Monash University and is Head of Laboratory Research in the Department of Nephrology at Monash Medical Centre. The Group investigates mechanisms of acute and chronic kidney injury, focusing on signalling pathways in inflammation, cell death and fibrosis. Within the Group, Dr Greg Tesch heads the studies in diabetic kidney disease while Dr Nikolic-Paterson focuses on acute kidney injury, glomerulonephritis and kidney transplant rejection. Our studies have led to a series of clinical trials.
A light lunch is served prior to the seminar at 11:45am in the seminar room foyer, level 2, TRF Building.
