Who we are?
The Institute of Physiology of the University of Zurich (UZH) is one of the outstanding research institute in Europe and Switzerland that provides modern infrastructures for a cutting-edge research in multiple aspects of animal physiology and pathophysiology. Our research group within the laboratory of Professor Roland Wenger and Dr. Stellor N Khodo focuses on the role of epithelial growth factor signaling in the pathophysiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD), an endemic pathogenic state that culminates to renal failure.
