INtegration Challenges

sub-challenges

  • Identify means by which renal cell types can functionally integrate into host kidney tissue following differentiation from pluripotent stem cells.
  • Examine means by which stem cell-derived vasculature (endothelial cells) can be used to perfuse host tissues or perfuse new stem cell-derived tissues. Work can be done in the realm to 3D printing to attempt to produce vasculature with lumen-like structures that could carry oxygenated blood to host tissues.
  • Longer term, but could stem cell-derived cells network cells be developed to form the physiological electrolyte gradients necessary for renal function?
  • How will innervation of new tissues be stimulated?
