The Future of Kidney Research is STEAM Powered
Event Details

Kidney disease affects around 850 million people worldwide with numbers continuing to rise. Holistic approaches which harness cutting edge science and art therapies are key to improving the quality of life of patients and their families

Hear from scientists as they explore how their study of kidney disease genetics is advancing diagnostics and therapeutics. Learn how the QUB Renal Arts Group collaborate with patients, carers, doctors, scientists, and artists to advance the physical and mental wellbeing of those living with kidney disease. See the fruits of these collaborations via a live performance from the Renal Arts band, Ragbone, and clips from a recent screenplay written by transplant patient, William Johnston.
