his is a cooperative study involving pediatric nephrology, adult renal medcine, transplantation, renal pathology and other researchers. All patients undergoing renal biopsy may be included after informed consent. The overall objective of this collaboration is to evaluate kidney biopsy material, blood and/or urine from patients with CKD (matching biopsy material with biosamples whenever possible) in order to validate new targets of common interest with scientific relevance and elements of novelty into the pathophysiology of kidney diseases. We have a biobank including tissue, blood and urine samples.
