Tissue Injury and Repair
Western University - LHSC
Increasing the lifespan of transplanted kidneys by studying the effects and potential role of kidney injury molecule-1 in the innate immune response.
Check out the new chapter written by Dr. Gunaratnam in the Scientific American Nephrology, Dialysis, & Transplantation.
The Canadian Institute of Health Research has recognized our lab’s research on “advancing our understanding of why transplanted kidneys fail prematurely and helping to develop new potential treatments to prolong their lifespan” as high calibre health research at Western University.
The results for the 2016 Fall CIHR Project Grant competition were recently announced and we were fortunate enough to be awarded a 5-year CIHR project grant for our KIM-1 transplant work in this highly competitive selection process! Thanks to each and everyone of our members for their contribution to the success of our research program.
