NORMAL BIOLOGY/DEVELOPMENT

Ageing of the kidney

What does happen to the normal kidney across the lifetime of a human (i.e what usually happens with aging? Is this simply a result of accumulated insults or not? How does the kidney maintain function across time)? How is this informed by the pathways involved in kidney development?

    and I like it being posed by developmental biologists.

    Integrating efforts with the aging community and developing model systems and integrating a renal element in the ongoing human cohort studies will steps which need to be taken now to take advantage of biological insights.
