Bachmann and Paliege are both experienced in a broad range techniques related to anatomy and cell biology of the kidney and the cardiovascular system, including high resolution immunohistochemistry and mRNA in situ hybridization. They provide extensive experience in the morphological and functional characterization of renal tissues. In the past, their scientific input was focussed on studies characterizing the distribution and regulation of key enzymes for nitric oxide and prostaglandin synthesis in the kidney. Paliege will contribute clinical experience and expertise in the generation and evaluation of animal models for AKI. Bachmann provides preferential access to the Charité morphological core facility, which he chairs.
*Dr. Paliege left the institution in December 2016.
