Implementation of the department's research strategy Best Research for Best Health will result in an expansion of our research programmes and in significant new funding opportunities for health research. In particular, the Hammersmith, St Mary's and Imperial College Biomedical Research Centre, formed this year, proposes to undertake research on renal medicine and transplantation, for which a five-year centrally funded budget of some £6.2 million has been approved. Other biomedical research centres will undertake research on kidney disease and transplantation as part of broader-based research themes.
