SWTIRR is unique in the approach it takes to help the renal community of patients, their relatives and carers. Education is germane to progress and our principle of education stretches from school age students to post-doctoral students including patients, nurses and other members of the multi-disciplinary team.
Our concept of research includes clinical research, academic and commercial as well as laboratory research encompassing cellular, molecular, biochemical and microbiology. The Patient Renal Research Advisory Team will be included at every stage of the projects.
The SWTIRR Board of Directors includes senior academics in nephrology, biochemistry and physiology, patient representatives, renal team management as well as practicing clinicians. The nephrologists of Epsom & St. Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust are associates of the Institute and the laboratory team includes clinician and scientists working together to deliver high quality renal research.
Currently there are a number of research projects underway in SWTIRR.
