A Role for CD133 in Stem Cell-Mediated Kidney Repair

A new study describes a putative role of the stem cell-associated pentaspan-trans-membrane glycoprotein CD133 in coordinating stem cell-mediated repair of kidney damage

Biomaterial Mobilizes Host Stem Cells to Promote Kidney Regeneration

A new study establishes that the injection of a collagen-based biomaterial can mobilize endogenous stem cells to promote kidney regeneration in a mouse model

Towards a Cell-Free Treatment for Kidney Injury

A new study suggests that engraftment of transplanted human kidney cells is not required for the effective treatment of kidney injury 

iPSC-Derived Renal Progenitors Successfully Treat Kidney Injury

Researchers demonstrate that progenitor cells derived from induced pluripotent stem cells have the ability to promoter kidney injury in a mouse model.

“Mini-kidneys” Grown from Adult Kidney Stem Cells?

Researchers identify adult kidney stem cells, and using 3D growth conditions, differentiate stem cell clusters into kidney-like structures.
