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?

    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.
