Journal: Kidney and Blood Pressure Research - Extended Manuscript Submission Deadline: May 31, 2024

The advent of the omics sciences is changing our knowledge in the medical field. Omics are acquiring great importance in defining the pathogenesis, helping the diagnosis and devising new therapies for many diseases. The possibility to conduct omics investigations at the single cell level and, with the advent of space omics, to reconstruct the entire function of an organ are truly revolutionizing the medical field. The kidney, with its complex anatomical architecture and its profound cellular differentiation, can greatly benefit from these new technologies.

This call for papers aims to collect research articles and reviews describing how omics technologies are changing our knowledge of renal function and the repercussions they have in the field of physiopathology, diagnostics, and therapy of renal diseases. Topics of particular interest are:

  • Application of omics approaches in rare renal diseases 
  • Characterization of urinary extracellular vesicles
  • Characterization of urine-derived renal progenitors
  • Single cell transcriptomics of normal and diseased renal cells
  • Spatial genomics and proteomics of normal and diseased renal cells


Please select the option “Call for Papers: Kidney Function and Omics Science” when submitting your manuscript and mention this Call for Papers in your cover letter.
