21st Century Medicine Lecture Series 2017: Today’s Research, Tomorrow’s Healthcare

What’s Wrong with our Kidneys?

Professor Steve Chadban, Professor of Medicine, Kidney Hub-Charles Perkins Centre, University of Sydney and Director of Renal Medicine, State-wide Renal Services, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney

What’s wrong with our kidneys? And what we are doing about it at the University of Sydney.

Professor Steve Chadban reviews the state of the nation in terms of kidney health, and discusses the spectrum of kidney disease in the Australian population. He will then turn to the lab to explore potential solutions for key problems in kidney health. From the lab he will next move to the clinic to examine the impact of specific interventions for people with kidney disease. Finally he will return to the population level to observe the impact of treatments for kidney disease on outcomes. This cycle of research, from population to lab to clinic and back, will be illustrated using specific examples of research conducted across the University of Sydney and at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.
