NKN Steering Commitee 2015

The NephCure Kidney Network is a patient registry containing patient-reported information about living with Nephrotic Syndrome. The NKN is governed by patients, patient parents, patient advocates, clinicians, researchers and representatives from industry, all working together to advocate for patients and families. The group is also charged with ensuring that high quality data is being collected and utilized properly for the research community.

This group, known as the Steering Committee, meets regularly (via phone) to discuss patient recruitment and retention, research priorities, and other topics relevant to the success of the NKN. The collective perspective of the Steering Committee members helps maintain a patient-centric focus throughout all the NKN-initiated activities.
