Exciting Research Partnerships at USC May Unlock Cures for Kidney Disease

Exciting research partnerships at USC may unlock new treatments and cures for kidney disease. A recent USC article highlights the promising stem cell work of Andrew McMahon, Ph.D., director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at USC, leader of the USC Stem Cell Initiative, and member of UKRO’s Medical Scientific Advisory Board. Determined to harness the power of stem cells and collaboration, McMahon teams up with fellow USC researchers—from the Departments of Cell and Neurobiology, Physiology and Biophysics, the Kidney-Pancreas Transplant Program, and the Division of Nephrology (to name a few)—to find innovative approaches to fighting kidney disease.

As the new USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center begins to take shape, we at UKRO look forward to being a part of the creative energy and interdepartmental innovation at USC and the Keck School.
