Medical Advisory Board

Share this Page:

The Action Kidney Cancer Medical Advisory Board has been established to support the work of our charity and, in particular, clinical trials and research. The members of the board are recognised experts in kidney cancer from leading institutions and hospitals around the UK, and many also serve on the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) Bladder and Renal Cancer Clinical Studies Group (CSG).

We are fortunate to have secured the commitment of such an eminent group of leading clinicians and nurses. We are honoured they have joined us to support kidney cancer research, improve recruitment and retention of patients in clinical trials, and increase awareness of the care and treatment of kidney cancer patients.
