In the new Louis A. Simpson and Kimberly K. Querrey Biomedical Research Center at Northwestern, tiny bio-artificial kidneys are growing in the lab of Dr. Susan Quaggin. She and a team of scientists, with expertise in stem cells, blood vessels and developmental biology, are accelerating the development of such bioengineered organs. But that’s not all. Dr. Quaggin talks about the projects and science underway that could lead to new treatments to prevent, manage and cure kidney diseases.
