Digestive, Kidney and Urological Systems IRG [DKUS]

The Digestive, Kidney and Urological Systems (DKUS) IRG will review applications on basic and clinical aspects of gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, kidney, urinary tract and male genital system physiology and pathobiology, as well as the disposition and action of nutrients and xenobiotics.  In addition, the DKUS IRG will review applications aimed at development and evaluation of new techniques, therapies and treatments related to the disorders of the GI tract, hepatobiliary, pancreas, kidney, urinary tract, and male genital system.  Investigators may employ a broad range of basic and clinical research methods including pharmacologic, chemical and biochemical approaches, genetics, genomics and proteomics, molecular and cell biology techniques and animal models.  Patient-oriented studies including pediatric gastroenterology, renal, urinary and male genital system are included in this IRG, but large population studies and randomized clinical trials involving digestive disorders, kidney, urinary and male genital systems will be reviewed elsewhere.
