Summary Nephrotoxicity screening using stem cell-derived proximal tubules
The kidney is a major target for drug-induced toxicity, however existing kidney epithelial cell lines in culture are very poor replicas of the proximal tubule in vivo. We have developed a method for generating complex multicellular 3D human kidney models in vitro using human pluripotent stem cells. This project will investigate how to use these as a platform for the screening of drug toxicity in vitro.
