The role of MIF in FSGS
PI: Peter Boor,
My project is about the role of MIF (and its homologue; MIF-2/DDT) in Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. MIF is a well described pleiotropic cytokine with a distinct role in kidney tubular fibrosis. Therefore, in the framework of my project I am investigating its role (along with its homologue) on the progression of FSGS.
