Kidney, Bladder & Prostate Research, St Peter's Trust
48 Riding House Street
St Peterâ€™s Trust was founded in 1970 with a legacy of Â£50,000, donated by a patient of Mr Howard Hanley, consultant urologist at the St Peterâ€™s Group of Hospitals - now comprising Urology at the new UCLH and Nephrology at the Royal Free Hospital (both within the University College & Royal Free Medical Schools).
By the time someone shows symptoms, 70% of their functioning kidneys will have been destroyed.
Research can change thisâ€¦ we have provided Â£50,953 to study kidney stones and why they form; Â£53,624 to investigate the spread of prostate cancer and look at new forms of treatment; and Â£92,354 to look at the causes of bladder dysfunction.
