Miriam Zacchia, M.D.,Ph.D, is a Junior Nephrologist at the Department of Translational Medical Sciences of the University of Campania, L. Vanvitelli  (Naples, IT). She has been trained in basic research and molecular biology at Yale University, CT (USA), focusing her studies on the cell signalling regulating renal citrate transport.

Currently, Dr. Zacchia takes care of patients with genetic kidney diseases of the Nephrology, especially rare syndromic ciliopathies, as Bardet-Biedl Syndrome.

Her research interests are mainly focused on the genetic basis of hereditary kidney diseases (including glomerulopathies, tubulopathies, ciliopathies and CAKUT). In addition, her studies aim to improve the understanding of the pathophysiology of kidney dysfunction in Bardet-Biedl syndrome, by using multiple approaches, as metabolomics and proteomics studies of patients’ urine samples and experimental models of disease.
