AstraZeneca announced a research collaboration with Shenzhen University Health Science Center.

The partners will undertake pre-clinical research focused on chronic kidney disease (CKD), which represents a large and growing unmet medical need in China.

Scientists from Shenzhen University Health Science Center’s Nephrology and Urology Center will work in collaboration with teams from AstraZeneca’s Innovation Center China in Shanghai, bringing together complementary skills that will harness and foster medical innovation.

Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

As a priority, the partners will focus on diabetic nephropathy, damage to the kidneys caused by diabetes, which, in severe cases, can lead to kidney failure.
