Genetics is revolutionising medicine. Better and cheaper genetic technologies enable us to quickly understand genetic components of kidney disease, and to study individual families with unknown kidney disorders, and unrelated individuals with apparently similar kidney problems. Recent work from our group, in collaboration with colleagues throughout the UK and abroad, includes the elucidation of a rare, but highly informative, kidney disorder also affecting the brain (epilepsy and incoordination) and hearing – EAST syndrome; establishing the genetic basis of premature arterial calcification in adults; clarification of the genetic components contributing to idiopathic membranous nephropathy, another common form of glomerulonephritis.
