Mayo Clinic offers numerous clinical trials that are open for enrollment to participants who want to volunteer for research studies related to kidney health and disease.
Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These human studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and conditions.
Mayo Clinic's clinical trials related to nephrology include studies on kidney transplantation, kidney tumors, kidney stones, polycystic kidney disease, hypertension and renovascular disease, genetics of kidney disease, pediatric nephrology, and much more.
Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national clinical trials with other medical institutions.
