The Nephrology Research Laboratory represents an integration group between the Division of Nephrology (University Hospital Zürich) and the Institute of Physiology. The focus of the laboratory is to elucidate the pathophysiological mechanisms of renal diseases, renal allograft pathology and peritoneal injury in peritoneal dialysis.

The current projects include the following:

Mechanisms of polycystic kidney diseases
(Group leader: Rudolf Wüthrich)

Role of non-coding RNAs in kidney injury
(Group Leader: Johan Lorenzen)

Mechanisms of glomerular injury
(Group leader: Andreas Kistler)
