Kidney disease

Kidney disease is a life-changing condition affecting many people, as well as older cats and dogs. Treatment is made all the more challenging because the disease’s symptoms are not evident until the kidneys have already lost most of their function.

At The University of Nottingham, our kidney disease research specialists are working to:

  • Find therapeutic solutions to prevent the occurrence of kidney conditions
  • Reduce the impact of kidney disease on those who develop it
  • Discover new ways to help kidneys recover their full function after damage occurs
