[Renal and urinary tract disease national research program]

Abstract : The National Institute of Health and Medical Research (Inserm), the Society of Nephrology, and the French Kidney Foundation recognized the need to create a National Research Program for kidney and urinary tract diseases. They organized a conference gathering 80 researchers to discuss the state-of-the art and evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of kidney and urinary tract disease research in France, and to identify research priorities. From these priorities emerged 11 of common interest: 1) conducting epidemiologic studies; 2) conducting large multicenter cohorts of well-phenotyped patients with blood, urine and biopsy biobanks; 3) developing large scale approach: transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics; 4) developing human and animal functional imaging techniques; 5) strengthening the expertise in renal pathology and electrophysiology; 6) developing animal models of kidney injury; 7) identifying nontraumatic diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers; 8) increasing research on the fetal programming of adult kidney diseases; 9) encouraging translational research from bench to bedside and to population; 10) creating centers grouping basic and clinical research workforces with critical mass and adequate logistic support; 11) integrating and developing european research programs.
