ICES-Institute for clinical evaluative sciences

Kidney, Dialysis & Transplantation Research Program

Program Lead: Amit Garg
Program Coordinator:

Established in 2013, the ICES Kidney, Dialysis and Transplantation (KDT) Research Program supports investigators and partners in their strategic use of linked health and health-related databases to conduct research that improves patient health across the spectrum of kidney disease and solid organ transplantation.

KDT researchers and scientists realize great value in a coordinated approach to research best practices, project management, training, adopting new methods, acquiring new data sets, knowledge translation, communications and financial sustainability. KDT staff are located in London, Ontario; they include a manager, program coordinator, five analysts/biostatisticians, five epidemiologists, a communications specialist and a patient partnerships specialist.

The KDT research program fosters partnerships between scientists, health care providers, patients and health care organizations (including the Ontario Renal Network and Trillium Gift of Life Network).
