Who we are
Kidney Research UK has been at the forefront of pioneering research for six decades, investing in talented researchers and funding work that could ultimately lead to a cure. We have made good progress but there is still much to do. The number of people living with kidney failure continues to rise and we must go further to drive innovation and increase investment in renal research.
We have a number of Trustees demitting from the Board, and following a Board Skills Audit and Effectiveness Review, in this recruitment round we are particularly looking for applicants with one of more of the skills below. We will appoint up to four new Trustees who will hopefully bring one or more of the following skills to the board and also to one of the sub committees:
- investment management and/or private equity / venture capital investment, ideally in a life science setting
- have experience in research as a renal scientist, or have clinical or medical research experience
- lived experience of kidney disease as a patient or carer
