Renal Imaging Target Identification:

The objectives of the Renal Imaging Target Identification group are to:


  1. Identify clinically relevant renal imaging targets in order to improve diagnosis of kidney disease and guide improved patient care.

  2. Develop and oversee preclinical models of acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD).

  3. Oversee the development of and clinical utility of the fibrotic models in acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD).

  4. Work with users to maximize the use of preclinical models.

  5. Help translate preclinical models to clinical disease.

Dr. Molitoris serves as the leader of the Renal Imaging Target Identification group.
