Research / About Us/ Kidney


Kidney research at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton developed as a result of clinical and basic science researchers coming together to increase medical understanding and develop cutting-edge solutions such as new drugs, treatments and practices. 

Our institution houses the Hamilton Centre for Kidney Research, which allows basic science and clinical researchers to translate their findings to improvements in patient care.  Our kidney researchers are studying the mechanisms involved in kidney failures caused by diabetes and hypertension – the two most common causes of kidney failure in North America. 

Kidney researchers collaborate with urologists to establish tumour banks in both of these areas.  Clinical collaboration between both disciplines has resulted in Hamilton developing into the second largest transplant program in the province.
