Developing novel methods of kidney MRI acquisition and image analysis using artificial intelligence

Nephrons are the basic functional unit of the kidney, an organ with a central role in maintaining homeostasis in the body. The number of nephrons in the kidneys and their microstructure reflect the success of renal development and the trajectory of renal health through life. Read more

A computational multi-omics approach to kidney function and disease.

This project will utilise multiple layers of ‘omics’ data to identify the molecular ‘signatures’ of kidney function. The project will make full use of our unique collection of approximately 500 human kidney tissue samples. Read more

A Multi-Omics approach to understanding cardiovascular risk in patients with End-Stage Kidney Disease

Background. End-stage Kidney failure, also known as End-Stage Kidney Disease (ESKD), is the final, irreversible stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD), where kidney function has worsened to the point that the kidneys can no longer function independently. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Investigating PZ-128 as a novel treatment for nephrotic syndrome and diabetic nephropathy

Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (INS) is a devastating disease in children that is typically associated with oedema, proteinuria, hypertension, microscopic haematuria, and renal insufficiency and usually leads to end stage renal failure despite the use of prolonged and toxic immunosuppression.

4-year PhD Studentship: A realist process evaluation of a conservative care intervention embedded within the ‘Prepare for Kidney Care’ Randomised Controlled Trial

End-stage kidney disease (ESKD) places significant social and economic burden on healthcare systems worldwide. Improving access to dialysis can reduce preventable mortality, but there are questions around which patients benefit from dialysis, and how best to manage those who do not. Read more

Hyaluronic acid plays a key role in protecting against diabetic kidney disease

Brief Rationale. 30-40% of patients with diabetes progress to diabetic kidney disease (DKD) within 10-15yr. This is the largest cause of end stage renal disease in the Western world and novel strategies are urgently sought. Read more

Anaemia of Chronic Kidney Disease: An All-Wales primary and secondary care prevalence and incidence study

Aim. The project will investigate the prevalence of ACKD in Wales across primary and secondary care. It will follow patients with CKD G3-5 to explore the association between ACKD and hospitalisation and mortality. Read more
