About Kidney Research UK:

Kidney Research UK are the largest charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK. Our vision is the day when everyone lives free from kidney disease.

We fund research into all aspects of kidney disease - from understanding the condition, to how we can prevent and treat it. We want to discover better, kinder treatments.

Research has given us life-saving kidney transplants, dialysis machines that filter the blood when the kidneys fail, and drugs to keep us going. But these treatments come at a cost. They can be gruelling, confining, relentless. A transplant is not a cure, they rarely last a lifetime.

Kidney disease still affects 3.5 million people in the UK. And 1 million of those don’t know they are at risk. That’s 3.5 million people who are someone’s parents, grandparents, children, friends.

And kidney failure is rising, as are the factors contributing to it, such as diabetes and obesity.

That’s why our work is more essential than ever.

Research is what we do. It is the only way to discover future preventions, treatments and cures. It is vital to keep our loved ones safe. Your support is crucial to make this happen.

We’re here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future. Kidney disease ends here.

You may have experience in the following roles: Research Officer, Research Associate, Research Analyst, Research Assistant, Research Specialist, Research Coordinator, Research Scientist, Research, Research Consultant, Research Grants, Scientific Research, Biological Science, Grants Officer, Grants Administrator, Medical Research, Project Researcher, Data Researcher, Social Researcher, Health Researcher, Charity, Charities, NFP, Not for Profit, etc.
