The UK Renal Registry (UKRR) Research Methods Study Group aims:

  1. To identify new research methods that may be applied to UKRR data
  2. To discuss methodological problems that have arisen with on-going or recent analyses and to identify solutions
  3. To ensure progress with the postgraduate research programme
  4. To ensure that the UKRR is achieving optimal impact from its publications

The chairs of the UK Kidney Research Consortium (UKKRC) Clinical Study Groups and the other UKRR study groups will be invited, on a rolling basis, to attend and explain their key research questions and to identify new research methods that may be applied to current hot topics.

To Join

The term of office for study group members is three years renewable at the discretion of the UKRR management. The study group will meet quarterly, physically or virtually with ad-hoc tasks and groups between meetings to enable work to be completed. Expenses will be covered by the UKRR.
