ABOUT THE LABORATORY

From 2016, with good practices and excellent working environment, our main goal is to integrate the new concepts in nephrology and immunology in order to contribute to the understanding and treatment for different renal diseases. We have collaborations in different areas of nephrology, both national and international.
