|Presentation Title||Regenerating the kidney via transposon-based reprogramming to induced nephron progenitors|
|Status||This meeting has already occurred|
Less than half of patients with acute kidney injury survive 90 days. In part this is because the adult mammalian kidney cannot make new nephrons, however, embryonic nephron progenitors are capable of forming all parts of the nephron. Direct reprogramming to an induced nephron progenitor state from human tubule cells will be described, including our inducible piggyBac transposon reprogramming strategy and dereplication of the transcription factors required (SIX1, EYA1, and SNAI2).
