Translational Models of Renal and Cardiovascular Disease: Informing Human Health or Not?

Symposium — Sunday, April 7, 2019 — 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM — Convention Center, Room W311D
Water and Electrolyte Homeostasis Section — Chair: Lisa M. Harrison-Bernard — Co-Chair: Jeffrey L. Osborn

Cardiovascular diseases are still the leading cause of death and morbidity in developed countries. Clinically relevant in vitro and in vivo studies are required to expand our knowledge and our understanding of the underlying mechanisms and accordingly provide new approaches focused on the improvement of diagnostic and treatment strategies of various cardiac and renal pathologies. The purpose of this symposium is to highlight the mammalian models to study renal and cardiovascular diseases.
