Brief description Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a major cause of death and morbidity in Australia, and currently therapeutic options are limited. Renal mononuclear phagocytes (rMP) are important immune cells which play a central role in health and disease of the kidney. However, rMP are a heterogenous group of cells with a poorly defined role in the development and progression of CKD. We will define the role of major subsets of rMP in CKD, and explore their potential for treating CKD.
