N6 Rare glomerular diseases (Müller-Deile)
Cell-cell communication through miR containing exosomes, autophagy and circulating factors in rare glomerular diseases
Term: 01.04.2021 – 31.12.2024
I investigate rare glomerular diseases with different cell culture models, transgenic zebrafish models, podocyte specific knockout models, innovative techniques, interdisciplinary collaborations and patient material to cover multidimensional aspects of the disease in a patient centered manner. Cell-cell signaling through miRs, exosomes, autophagy and circulating factors are investigated to learn more about pathomechanisms of rare glomerular diseases that might translate into novel therapeutic targets in the future.
