“Role of branched-chain amino acid catabolism in healthy and injured kidney“

The Anne Klibanski Visiting Lecture Series was created to support and advance the careers of women. These lectures offer the opportunity for women faculty from outside institutions that have hosted Anne Klibanski Scholars to present on their expertise, either alone or in tandem with an Anne Klibanski Scholar.

Presenter: Sian E. Piret, PhD, Assistant Professor, Division of Nephrology and Hypertension Renaissance School of Medicine, Stony Brook University

Upon completion of this activity, participants were able to:

  • Understand the metabolic pathways used to generate ATP in healthy proximal tubule cells.
  • Understand how these pathways change in the setting of AKI.
  • Understand how the branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) catabolic pathway may be regulated.
  • Understand the cellular and physiological consequences of altered BCAA catabolism.
