Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition that affects nearly 15% of the U.S. population and over 200 million people worldwide. Alfonso Eirin Massat, M.D., conducts research to find effective interventions to preserve renal function in patients with CKD.
The work in Dr. Eirin's laboratory has immediate impact on patient care at Mayo Clinic by improving the understanding of the contribution of these organelles to stem cell function. Investigations conducted by Dr. Eirin and his colleagues also contribute to the development of novel therapeutic tools to preserve the regenerative potency of stem cells and their suitability for autologous transplantation in patients.
