Kidney, Transplant & Diabetes Research Australia (KTDRA) is fundraising to support ground-breaking translational medical research that is helping to improve the lives of our family and friends suffering with kidney disease and diabetes.
Our aim is simple – to reduce and ultimately eliminate these chronic diseases in Australia and around the world.
With the generous support of the community, we fight to advance vital research to eliminate kidney disease and diabetes.
As the fastest growing chronic health problem in this country, diabetes affects nearly 5% of the population, or about 1.2 million Australians. Chronic kidney disease is also on the rise, affecting 1 in 10 Australians.
But the research we fund is helping people live well with these conditions.
Translating medical research into outcomes for patients as soon as possible.
We’re proud to support clinicians, scientists and students who continue to push the research boundaries in their fight to ultimately eliminate kidney disease and diabetes in Australia and around the world.
Together, we focus on translating science into clinical improvements and better quality of life for patients who suffer with these chronic and often disabling conditions.
Health issues began from an early age for Peter, 53. First developing signs of type 1 diabetes in primary school, lack of research and awareness meant he remained undiagnosed until he was 15 years old.
