Nefrologia a Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca

The group is closely tied with the hospital Nephrology Department’s clinical practice. Its lines of research are oriented towards resolving the clinical features of kidney disease.


The group’s research projects fall into two main areas. On the one hand, the progression of renal insufficiency, focused on the nature of kidney diseases and kidney transplant. In this area, they are also studying the recurrence of kidney disease after transplant. On the other hand, the group deals with atheromatosis in chronic kidney disease.

Due to its clinical nature, the research team has a space in which to conduct clinical trials and observational studies. In terms of certification, the group belongs to the kidney research network at the Institut Carlos III (REDinREN).
