The article profiles François Morel, who was presented with the 1995 A.N. Richards Award. Morel's personal background was presented, with his birthplace in Geneva, Switzerland. At an early age, he already knew that his heart was drawn to the field of natural science. He experienced laboratory work on the distribution and excretion of radionucleotides. He also studied the function of the different heterogenous nephron segments.

    Tubular lipidosis is a commonly observed histological lesion in proteinuric renal diseases. We have studied the interaction between native and modified human lipoproteins and human renal proximal tubular cells to investigate whether lipoproteins could be injurious to tubular cells in culture....

    Rat male hypogonadism ( hgn/hgn) is accompanied by oligomeganephronic hypoplastic kidney (HPK), in which each kidney contains one quarter the number of nephrons present in a normal kidney. The nephrons of the HPK are extremely hypertrophied. These characters were apparently common to human...

    Rats within the early maintenance phase of post-ischemic acute renal failure (ARF) can resist additional ischemic insults. This study assessed whether this protection exists directly at the tubular cell level, and if so, whether it is a consequence of prior cell injury (for example, due to...

    The stop-flow technique was used in dogs to determine the site of entry of urinary prostaglandins (PG) into tubular fluid. The proximal tubule was localised by the peak (U/PPAH)/(U/PIn) and the distal tubule and collecting duct by the peak U/PIn and the minimum (U/PNa/( U/PIn). The peak of...

    The maintenance of phosphate homeostasis in uremia appears to be governed both by parathyroid hormone (PTH) and by PTH-independent adaptations in renal tubular function. The relative contributions of these two mechanisms that control phosphate excretion by the diseased kidney have been difficult...
