Our position on stem cell research
We are committed to making life better for the millions of patients living with kidney disease by funding vital research into treatments, preventions and cures.
Stem cell research is vital in helping researchers understand the causes of kidney diseases and developing therapies to treat it.
In accordance with the Code of Practice for the Use of Stem Cell Lines, we only consider projects where adult or embryonic stem cell lines are used by researchers for justified and valuable purposes which comply with UK regulations.
