Kidney — Control of Homeostasis
NEWSLETTER ::: NO. 18 ::: JULY 2019
DEAR
The 18h Kidney.CH newsletter has a focus on kidney fibrosis and young scientists, such as Carsten Scholz. He just finished his NCCR Junior Grant period and reports about his project. Another new face in our network is Christian Stockmann who came from the Georges-Pompidou European Hospital, Paris (F). Read the interview with him and have look to the "Portrait"!

Have fun while reading!
Yours, Jens Selige
