How zebrafish are helping scientists to unlock the secrets of a new kidney disease
Dr Aoife Waters, a consultant paediatric nephrologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, has been using zebrafish modelling to discover a new cause of progressive kidney disease and how it plays a key role in our understanding of complex features of childhood kidney failure.
This exciting research could one day identify new ways to treat disease and stop more children dying.
