Welcome to the Moeckel Lab!

Moeckel Lab Group 2014
My lab studies the molecular mechanisms of fibrosis in the kidney and factors that lead to progression of fibrosis in diabetic nephropathy. We are also studying the role of adult stem cells in repair of acute kidney injury.


The research focus areas in the Moeckel lab are centered on the vascular and cellular biology of acute kidney injury and progression of chronic kidney disease:
