Webinar: Can rodent kidney models really simulate the clinic?
With Dr Wioletta Pijacka
Chronic kidney diseases remain a major unmet clinical need. Animal models are used to evaluate the therapeutic potential of novel candidate drugs, however developing animal models with strong predictive validity remains a challenge. Due to the complexity of human renal pathologies, it is imperative that the nuances of each model are taken into careful consideration to ensure the best chance of success.

Project Leader @RenaSci, part of Sygnature Discovery
Wioletta is an in-vivo translational biologist with over 12 years experience in renal and cardio-vascular biology, bringing in-depth knowledge across several different scientific areas including foetal programming, kidney disease and cardiovascular diseases. Her expertise is developing fit-for-purpose animal models used in clinical translation. Wioletta obtained her PhD in Animal Physiology at the University of Nottingham, and then worked at the University of Bristol before joining AstraZeneca, where she set up models of chronic kidney diseases focusing particularly on fibrosis. As a Project Leader in Kidney Disease at RenaSci, Wioletta has now built a team to tackle fibrosis in kidney.
