From the authors: “One of the goals of the Kidney Precision Medicine Project (KPMP) is to establish rigorous pre-analytical and analytical protocols with highly standardized and controlled workflows to interrogate biopsies of [acute kidney injury] and [chronic kidney disease] patients using cutting edge OMICS and imaging technologies.” 

This study is highlighted as one of January’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
