Our Mission

NephroNet is an organization dedicated to providing resources to patients, practicing clinicians, and all individuals that are concerned with improving the care of patients with kidney disease. For patients, our goal is to be an educational resource that provides practical information to patients and their families. We endorse and are motivated as an organization to improve minority participation in CKD clinical research. We believe that by improving patient education of their disease, they will be better equipped to work with their physicians.

The NephroNet membership is composed of both academic and private physicians that work closely with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), American Society Nephrology, as well as large and small healthcare companies that are motivated to treat chronic kidney disease. The NephroNet membership has experts in all areas of kidney disease and is available for consultation that will ultimately bring new therapies to the renal community.
