Clinical Trial and Research

The Research Committee was created under Special Order No. 42 s. 1990 due to the need of the Institute for an advisory group who will conduct as well as supervise all research trials and exploratory studies. Since then, the Committee has been continuously upgraded in order to improve the Institute’s research endeavors. The most recent re-organization was under Special Order No. 16 s. 1999 changing the members of the Research Committee.


  • To coordinate researches being produced by all departments in order to produce relevant and accurate information on the diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease, and renal replacement including dialysis and transplantation, utilizing the clinical and laboratory materials of the Institute

  • To ensure that researches conducted by the Institute have direct clinical application on the practice of medicine, especially in the field of renal medicine and transplantation.
