The project is to understand the prevalence of monogenic causes of nephrotic syndrome in Indian population. This involves screening of nephrotic patients for various known gene mutations and functional validation of the identified mutations. This study would include patient screening and sample processing, various molecular and cellular techniques (PCR, sequencing, NGS, qPCR, cell culture, FACT, etc.) as well as bioinformatic analysis of the molecular data. Such study will allow us to understand the role of genetic mutations in nephrotic syndrome development.
