Walls Bursaries

The Walls Bursaries aim to help UK Kidney Association members to spend short periods at other centres, generally outside the UK, to learn new laboratory techniques or gain new clinical skills. They are available to one clinician and one non-clinician who have made a significant contribution to the field of Academic Nephrology.
