The Centre for Nephrology, Urology and Transplantation within the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences is the home for academic scholarship in basic and translational research, teaching, education and clinical innovation in diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract and the psychosocial support of patients with these diseases. It brings together research leaders, academics, clinicians and students from several disciplines who have established a productive track record and a collaborative environment with which to advance knowledge and understanding within the field.
By working together and in close collaboration with patients, we aim to advance fundamental knowledge in the field of Kidney and urological diseases, to develop new treatments and to improve the lives of those affected including from underserved communities and with protected characteristics.
Our research covers:
- Acute and Chronic kidney disease from which 1.2 million people die every year and another 1.7 million die from acute kidney injury.
- Transplantation , the ‘gold standard’ treatment for CKD, but still limited by three fundamental problems: the shortage of organs, the morbidity associated with immunosuppression, and the premature failure of transplanted organs.
- Urological diseases, encompassing a wide spectrum of conditions, ranging from benign to highly malignant, which together present a high disease burden, with some like prostate disease accounting for >£100 million annual NHS spend.
