Is Alport syndrome more common than we thought?

Is Alport syndrome more common that historically thought? Join our next online workshop and hear about the research of Assistant Professor Moumita Barua and Vanessa Williams at the University of Toronto.

Working with genetics databases such as those from UK Biobank and deCODE in Iceland, Moumita Barua’s genetics studies have identified that Alport syndrome may be much more prevalent in the population that previously thought.

Vanessa Williams, Postdoctoral researcher at the University of Toronto, talks about how, using a mouse model of Alport, two drugs capable of reducing kidney injury have been identified.
