Brief description A lack of oxygen in the kidney (hypoxia) is a primary cause of kidney disease, but the mechanisms are not clear. To determine the processes involved, we will take a new approach; combining a mathematical model with studies of kidney oxygen regulation in both normal and diseased kidneys. We will determine the causes of hypoxia in kidney disease, and find out if preventing hypoxia has the potential to be a treatment for kidney disease.
