Our research goals
We are invested in research that leads the fight against kidney disease. Findings drive strategy and policy development for the advancement of kidney health.
Support of kidney research is crucial for:
- the long-term improvement of health outcomes for those with, or at risk of, kidney disease
- the development of state and federal government kidney-related health policy
- building Australia’s evidence base to drive and underpin an accessible and equitable healthcare service.
