USC Scientists Involved in Kidney Research

As the USC/University Kidney Research Center (KRC) takes shape, new recruits will join the scientists already involved in kidney research on the University of Southern California’s Health Sciences Campus. They share a common interest in stopping the increase of kidney disease by understanding the difference between normal kidney function and chronic kidney disease and by developing strategies to prevent and treat conditions associated with chronic kidney disease.

The investigators listed below will work with the KRC to create a powerful critical mass for kidney research here in the Los Angeles region.
