About Kidney Research UK
Kidney Research UK was established in 1961 and remains the leading UK charity dedicated to funding research into kidney disease, so that by improving the understanding of kidney disease, its causes, treatment and management through funding research, we are confident we can build on the advances and scientific breakthroughs that have already been made. Kidney Research UK provides a range of funding schemes supporting the development of current and future researchers as well as provision of research grants to established researchers.

The Daphne Jackson Trust is dedicated to returning scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians to their careers following a break taken for family, caring or health reasons.
Daphne Jackson Fellowships are unique – they offer STEM professionals wishing to return to a research career after a break of two or more years, the opportunity to balance an individually tailored retraining programme with a challenging research project in a suitably supportive environment.
This Fellowship is part-time over two years and consists of a challenging research project and at least 100 hours’ retraining per year. The unparalleled support offered by the Trust’s Fellowship advisors and administrative staff, coupled with mentoring and retraining provided during the Fellowship, give returners the confidence and skills they need to successfully return to research.
