End-stage renal disease (ESRD) affect 10% of the world’s population. Temporary therapies such as dialysis and organ transplantation are deemed insufficient for ESRD patient treatment. Furthermore, due to donor organ shortage multiple patients die while waiting for a suitable organ. Alternative therapies are of outmost importance to circumvent these limitations, but suitable approached to investigate renal disease and regeneration are limited are still largely dependent on animal models. In vitro models with relevant physiologic mimicry and function are necessary for the development of alternative therapies and to unravel new treatment possibilities.
