Seldin and Giebisch's The Kidney: Physiology and Pathophysiology (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Seldin and Giebisch's The Kidney, Sixth Edition: Physiology and Pathophysiology provides a common language for nephrology researchers, fellows and practicing nephrologists to discuss normal and abnormal renal physiology and the development and diagnosis of a wide range of renal diseases. Guided by a team of four distinguished authorities in nephrology, experts from all areas of renal research and practice take readers from the structure and function of normal renal physiology, to the specific cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying disease development, and into the management of renal disease through physiologic regulation.

This classic nephrology reference for nearly 30 years combines basic and clinical sciences that provides authoritative, concise and readily accessible information. Academic, medical and pharma researchers save valuable time by quickly accessing the very latest details on renal physiology and pathophysiology as opposed to searching through thousands of journal articles.

Dr. Alpern has performed research in the area of epithelial physiology, focusing on the mechanisms and regulation of acid transport. He received his MD degree from the University of Chicago and then trained in Internal Medicine at Columbia Presbyterian. Following postdoctoral training in the Cardiovascular Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco, Alpern joined the faculty at UCSF, then moved to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School as Chief of Nephrology and later Dean of the medical school. He is now Dean of Yale School of Medicine and Ensign Professor. Dr. Caplan studies epithelial cell biology and physiology. His work focuses on the trafficking and regulation of renal ion transport proteins. His group also studies the signaling pathways involved in Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease. He received his MD and PhD degrees from Yale University, having pursued his dissertation work in the Department of Cell Biology under the guidance of Drs. James D. Jamieson and George E. Palade. Following postdoctoral work in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Yale, Caplan joined that department as a faculty member. He is currently the C.N.H. Long Professor and Chair of Yale University School of Medicine's Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology. Dr. Moe received his medical degree from the University of Toronto where he also did his internal medicine residency and clinical nephrology fellowship. Orson Moe moved to the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center for research training in renal physiology. He is currently Professor of Internal Medicine and Physiology and is a member of the Nephrology Division at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He is also the Director of the Charles and Jane Pak Center of Mineral Metabolism and Clinical Research and holds the Charles and Jane Pak Chair in Mineral Metabolism Research and the Donald Seldin Professorship in Clinical Investigation. Orson Moe conducts both basic science and patient-oriented research on renal physiology and metabolism, and epithelial biology. Susan E. Quaggin, MD, FASN, is a graduate of the University of Toronto where she completed her residency and served as chief medical resident for the University's St. Michael's Hospital. She completed her nephrology fellowship at the University of Toronto and Yale University, where she also completed research and post-doctoral training. Dr. Quaggin also trained in the developmental biology program at the University of Toronto's Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute. Dr. Quaggin also now serves as Editor for Current Opinion in Nephrology & Hypertension and The Kidney, and as an Editorial Board Member for JCI, Disease Models and Mechanisms, and Kidney International. Currently the Charles Horace Mayo professor of medicine at Northwestern University and a Finnish Distinguished Professor (2012-2017), Dr. Quaggin's awards and honors include the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) Alfred Newton Richards Award for Basic Science, (2013); a Kidney Foundation of Canada Medal for Research Excellence, (2009); American Heart Association, Hypertension Council Donald Seldin Lecture and Award, (2012); Princesses' Lectureship at the Victor Chang Cardiovascular Research Institute, (2013); a W.
