Society Affiliation Information

The Renal Association is the professional body for nephrologists and renal scientists based in the UK, and is active in promoting and disseminating research that may ultimately improve outcomes for patients with kidney disease. The objectives of the Association are: to advance, collate and disseminate knowledge of renal structure and function; to seek means for the prevention and treatment of renal disorders; to deal with any matters concerning the welfare of patients with renal diseases and the organization of services for their relief. Members of The Renal Association will receive a discount on BMC Nephrology's article-processing charge when they provide a discount code (which members can obtain by contacting the society) during the submission process.
