DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal describes the development of a regenerative treatment for acute kidney injury based on recent advances in reprogramming to change cell fate. Specifically, nuclear reprogramming technology will be employed to create a population of induced nephron progenitor cells. The nephron progenitor cells of the kidney are the only cell type known to be capable of differentiation into all parts of the nephron. Unfortunately, these cells are only...
