MDI Bioscience | Expertise Partner
MDI Biological Laboratory is internationally recognized for pioneering contributions to the understanding of renal physiology and function. Today, we continue to play an important role in understanding the fundamental mechanisms of kidney damage and repair. MDI Bioscience, a division of MDI Biological Laboratory, now brings this expertise to drug discovery by creating target-specific research programs utilizing high throughput in vivo profiling in zebrafish, computational pharmacology, and simulated biological systems like organoids and organ-on-a-chip technology. We create tailored genetic and chemically-induced zebrafish models for early screening in whole organisms to complement invitro screens and provide greater confidence in the future viability of early-stage molecules.
Chinook Therapeutics | Industry Partner
Chinook Therapeutics, Inc. is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing precision medicines for kidney diseases. Chinook’s product candidates are being investigated in rare, severe chronic kidney disorders with opportunities for well-defined clinical pathways. Chinook’s lead program is atrasentan, a phase 3 endothelin receptor antagonist for the treatment of IgA nephropathy and other proteinuric glomerular diseases. BION-1301, an anti-APRIL monoclonal antibody is being evaluated in a phase 1/2 trial for IgA nephropathy. CHK-336, an oral small molecule LDHA inhibitor for the treatment of hyperoxalurias, is being evaluated in a phase 1 healthy volunteer trial.
MediBeacon | Exhibition Partner
MediBeacon is a medical technology company specializing in advances of fluorescent tracer agents and transdermal measurement with a focus on developing actionable point of care organ function measurements. MediBeacon technology is being shown to have many preclinical nephrology applications with over 275 peer-reviewed publications and conference abstracts in which Transdermal GFR (tGFR) has been used. In 2018 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted Breakthrough Device designation to the Transdermal GFR Measurement System (TGFR). Clinical studies in subjects with normal and impaired kidney function are ongoing. Data readout of the TGFR Phase 3 Global Pivotal Study is expected in 2022.
