One in three patients in intensive care has serious renal insufficiency, which significantly increases the risk of death. In the long term, 20% of these patients will develop a chronic kidney disease that will majorly impact their daily life.
The connection between the condition of serious renal insufficiency and developing a chronic kidney disease is an important subject in today’s research.
This project consists of developing a two-year translational research program to identify risk factors at the cellular level of developing a chronic kidney disease.
