Prof Raj Thakker delivered the Jack W. Cobourn Endowed Lectureship at the annual meeting of the American Society of Nephrology, in November 2012.  This endowed lecture is awarded for outstanding work in the fields of bone metabolism and divalent ion transport. His lecture, entitled “Stone formation in Dent’s Disease”, discussed how molecular studies and the generation of mouse models of the disease have increased our understanding of the renal tubular mechanisms that regulate mineral homeostasis. The findings fit with his main research focus on the molecular basis of disorders of calcium homeostasis.
