As 2019 comes to a close, we are taking a look back at a few highlights from the past year. Not only have we made progress in supporting the successful delivery of our 18 research projects, but we have also taken major steps in the advancement of our patient engagement, curriculum development, and knowledge translation activities. In addition, 2019 has marked the launch of several infrastructure initiatives that will enhance capacity for patient-oriented kidney research on a national scale.
We would like to take a moment to thank the members of our community that continue to shape our work in meaningful ways. We are proud of the progress we have made to date and are looking forward to what the new year has in store for our network!
