Researchers: Prof Melissa Little (Principal investigator) ,  A/Pr Alicia Oshlack

Brief description We have developed a method for turning adult stem cells into mini-kidneys that contain all the different cell types you would expect of a developing kidney. We believe such mini-organs will prove valuable for drug screening, disease modelling and generating cells for treating patients. In this grant, we will optimise our method to improve the maturity of the mini-kidneys and test their utility for drug screening as well as trialling cellular therapies using mini-kidney derived cells.
