Pint of Science takes a look at all things kidney

For a second year in a row, we are delighted to be partnering with the Pint of Science Festival. This international science festival brings together leading scientists and researchers to local pubs, so people can discover and learn about science over a pint.

In the UK some 32 cities will join this year’s festival, and we are delighted to have some of our amazing researchers in the line-up in four cities – London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Newcastle.

Do you know how amazing an organ the kidney is, how it works, what happens when it fails? Do you know that remarkable research is being carried out right across the country to find cures for kidney disease and to improve patients’ lives? Now’s your chance to find out more.
