Thrasos Therapeutics and Collaborators Publish Nature Medicine Research Article Detailing Potential Treatment Approach for Kidney Disease


2/7/2012 6:54:02 AM

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Thrasos today announced that the journal Nature Medicine has published the results of a collaborative research program detailing the role of the bone morphogenic protein (BMP) pathway in the development of kidney disease. This research was led by Dr. Raghu Kalluri, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, in collaboration with the Thrasos research team and Dr. Mary Rusckowski, Associate Professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
