The Kidney Research Centre (KRC) is Canada’s first research facility devoted exclusively to the investigation of diseases that attack the kidney. It is affiliated with The Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, the University of Ottawa, and The Ottawa Hospital. KRC scientists and clinician researchers are taking a lead role nationally in developing new strategies to improve detection and treatment of renal disease.
The Diabetes Canada provides resources for multi-disciplinary diabetes healthcare providers and researchers, including practical applications for professional education and research, as well as references to inform and guide best practices for the care of people with diabetes in Canada.
Excellent kidney health, optimal quality of life, and a cure for kidney disease. For over 50 years, this vision has guided The Kidney Foundation of Canada to be a collaborative, inventive and focused leader in the development of programs, services, research opportunities and awareness campaigns that have had a positive impact on the millions of Canadians living with, or at risk of developing kidney disease.
