OUR FOCUS

Millions of people around the world suffer from some form of kidney disease. There are several causes and unfortunately, many of them are not well understood. We believe there are early markers that may show if a person is likely to develop kidney disease.

By participating in the KINDRED project, you can join the network of doctors and scientists at MGH, who are working tirelessly to find ways of treating, and even preventing kidney disease across the world.

THE RESEARCH

The KINDRED project is focused on better understanding kidney disease. For this study, we are looking for blood samples from people who have end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and are currently on dialysis.

In this research project, we test blood samples you volunteer, hoping to determine better ways that will, in the future, help doctors and scientists at MGH, better identify if someone is at risk of developing kidney disease.

NEPHROLOGY LAB HISTORY

We are researchers who specialize in diseases and disorders of the kidneys. Through our research, we aim to translate laboratory science and epidemiological observations into discoveries that would improve the diagnosis and treatment of human disease.

The Thadhani Lab is a multidisciplinary research group that conducts observational studies, basic science research, and clinical trials with the goal of finding new diagnostic approaches and therapeutic interventions for patients with kidney disease and related disorders. We work as a part of the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Together, we serve as the main research facility housing the KINDRED project.
