Learn about kidney function in five minutes

Want a fun way to learn more about kidney function in less than five minutes? Several of the undergraduate students actively conducting research in the Department of Medicine have filmed this short lesson in nephrology to for the American Physiological Society’s annual “Phantastic Physiology Voyage: Function Follows Form” video contest.

Each year, the society encourages undergraduate students to find a way to creatively connect with physiology in an effort to engage the broader public with a short video meant for layperson audiences. In addition to creativity, technical merit, and originality, the entries are will be judged on popularity. Please take a few minutes to support the Department of Medicine’s undergraduate researchers by watching “Hello from your Kidney.”
