    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Sanjay Jain is a Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics and Pathology & Immunology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, USA (WUSM). His laboratory focuses on how kidneys and the lower urinary tract develop and organize to maintain homeostasis across lifespan in health and disease. His has defined key developmental pathways and mechanisms that regulate the joining of primitive ureter and bladder, initiation of the collecting system and branching morphogenesis of the kidney and genetic mutations associated with CAKUT. He leads multiple NIH-sponsored atlas efforts to map healthy and disease states in the human kidney including HuBMAP, KPMP, RBK/GUDMAP and Pediatric Center of Excellence in Nephrology. The team has identified, validated and mapped ~100 cell identities in the kidney including healthy and injured cells and defined genes and pathways that help recovery or predict decline in kidney function. His lab is currently using cutting edge multimodal single cell and spatially resolved omics approaches to create 2D and 3D maps of the human kidney in health and disease in diverse populations across lifespan. 

    Education activities and interests

    Our group is committed to provide opportunities to students and trainees from diverse backgrounds and underrepresented communities and various stages in their education (high school, undergraduates, medical students, post-bacs and graduate students, fellows, postdocs, early stage investigators). We are a participating lab in the HuBMAP and Pediatric Center of Excellence in Nephrology Summer scholar program. These provide experience in single cell technologies, wet lab, didactic courses and clinical shadowing related to the genitourinary system. 


    Training in using the R package for single cell analysis.
    Wet lab experience in tissue processing, preservation, molecular biology techniques, 2D and 3D imaging, mouse dissection
    histology, microscopy, data mining and analysis, single cell studies, transcriptomics
