CANCELLED - 2019 Maurice B. Burg Lecture

Air date: Wednesday, October 23, 2019, 2:00:00 PM
Time displayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local
Description: Maurice B. Burg, the legendary kidney researcher who spent his entire career in the intramural program of NHLBI, was known for innovation in the development of techniques for the study of transport and osmotic regulation in kidney epithelia. His work resulted in a virtual rewriting of renal physiology and nephrology textbooks. One of his early trainees, Robert A. Star, MD, Director of the Division of Kidney, Urologic, and Hematologic Diseases at NIDDK and an intramural investigator himself, will review Burg’s technological innovations and show how Burg’s work set the stage for breathtaking contemporary innovations in renal research techniques driving progress today.
