Researchers Shine a Light on UV Light Exposure and Kidney Damage – Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology

Read article - Quotes Sladjana Skopelja-Gardner, assistant professor of medicine, in an article about a study she co-authored with researchers from the University of Washington, which found that certain white blood cells not only infiltrate skin that is exposed to UV-light, the cells also migrate to the kidney. "That's a bit unusual—we normally think of neutrophils as short-lived cells that sort of zoom to where the inflammation is and then die off there," explained Skopelja-Gardner.
