The KaroKidney biobank encompasses over 600 kidney biopsies and 150 vascular biopsies
Welcome to KaroKidney
KaroKidney's expanding biobank currently contains more than 600 renal biopsies (>320 native kidney biopsies from adult patients, 110 pediatric patients, 145 living donors and > 50 transplanted patients) and 150 arterial biopsies from patients with ESRD and healthy controls. The tissue is stored in ways that allows analysis of both morphology and RNA/protein expression. Read more.
Next meeting will be held on April 27, at 3.00 pm.
