The Renal and Transplantation Pathology group (PRYT [Patología Renal y de Trasplantes]) is a research group located in the Department of Pathology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Antioquia, Medellín, Colombia.

The aims of the group are focused on glomerulopathies in native kidneys in Hispanics and pathology of solid organ transplantation. Our projects are centered on histopathology and molecular pathology.

We hope to be a reference centre for investigation in renal pathology and transplantation pathology in Colombia.

Current investigation projects
• Transplanted kidney biopsies: correlation of histopathological findings with clinical expression and graft evolution..
• BK renal toxicity for anticalcineurinics: a new analysis for an ancient problem.
• BK virus infection in renal allografts: a study in hispanic receptors.
• Infiltrating cells in lupus nephritis.
• Glomerulopathies in children.

Group director: Luis F. Arias, MD, PhD.
