About us

Welcome to Cochrane Kidney and Transplant.Cochrane Kidney and Transplant

We are located in  Sydney, Australia at the Centre for Kidney Research at the Children's Hospital at Westmead.

Cochrane Kidney and Transplant (previously known as the Cochrane Renal Group) was initially established on 1st March 1997  with its editorial base in Lyon in France.  In May 2000, the editorial base moved to  Sydney, Australia and in 2010 we celebrated the 10th  anniversary  of Cochrane Kidney and Transplant in Sydney.

We are one of  53 Cochrane Review Groups that are  part of Cochrane, an international, independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care. Cochrane produces and disseminates systematic reviews of research on healthcare interventions. Its major product is the  Cochrane Library.

Exploring our website will provide you with  information about our work, how you can become involved, and provide access to a variety of resources and links to help you prepare your Cochrane systematic review for Cochrane Kidney and Transplant.
