Our Vision

To be a world leading clinical trials organisation that makes meaningful differences to people living with kidney disease.

Our Mission

To deliver high quality, innovative, investigator-initiated clinical trials that focus on improving the health and wellbeing of people living with kidney disease.

About us

The Australasian Kidney Trials Network (AKTN) designs, conducts and supports high quality clinical trials focused on improving life for people with kidney disease.

It is a not-for-profit collaborative research group that designs, conducts and supports investigator-initiated clinical trials with the aim of improving life for people living with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

To date, the AKTN has successfully completed eight trials with a record number expected to be running in 2017. Our research helps bring evidence to medical practice and in doing so improve outcomes for CKD patients.
