Kidney Research UK

About us

Kidney Research UK was founded in 1961 and is the leading UK charity dedicated to funding research aimed at finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for kidney disease. We campaign for better patient access to renal services, strive to promote awareness of kidney disease and operate a kidney health information service to answer the questions kidney patients inevitably have about their condition. Currently, only one in four people receive the kidney transplant they need. 90 per cent of all people on the UK’s transplant waiting list.
