Northwestern University George M. O'Brien Kidney Research Core Center

(NU GoKidney)

NU GoKidney aims to strengthen the regional, national and international capacity to identify test, and advance the development of novel therapeutics for patients with kidney diseases by engaging scientists around the world in three areas: preclinical models, therapeutic design and development, and clinical and translational research.

The center’s ultimate goal is to ensure that potential therapeutic targets for kidney diseases are identified, tested in preclinical studies and advanced to first in human studies so that the pipeline for therapeutics development in nephrology is enhanced."
