Thanks to the amazing work of researchers and medical advancement, chronic kidney disease is no longer the death sentence it was just decades ago. Research has led to the development and perfection of dialysis treatment and has made transplantation the treatment of choice for an increasing number of patients.

All of these advances as well as countless others would never have been made were it not for thousands of hours and millions of dollars first being spent on basic and clinical medical research.  Research explores all avenues of a patient’s wellbeing, from the function of the kidney itself to factors which delay progression of kidney disease, influencers on longevity of transplant, and the impact of exercise and diet on kidney health.
