Professor Heerspink’s principal research interests include optimizing current treatment strategies and finding new therapeutic approaches to halt the progression of renal and cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes with a specific focus on personalized medicine. He is Professor of Clinical Trials and Personalized Medicine; Clinical Pharmacologist at the Department of Clinical Pharmacy and Pharmacology at the University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands; and visiting professor at the University of New South Wales in Sydney. He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at The George Institute for Global Health, Sydney, Australia, where he investigated the effects of blood pressure-lowering regimens on renal and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease.
Professor Heerspink leads and participates in clinical trials focused on renal and cardiovascular complications of Type 2 diabetes. His main expertise includes clinical trial design and personalized medicine as well as methodological aspects and statistical analyses of clinical trials. Based on his work at The George Institute, he was awarded a young investigator grant and subsequently in 2015 a consolidator investigator grant from the Dutch organization of scientific research and received in 2016 the Galien award for his research.
Professor Gallagher’s research interests include large scale clinical trials exploring ways to improve outcomes of kidney patients with a focus on acute kidney injury, long term treatment effects, and applying research evidence into practice. He is Associate Professor, Faculty of Medicine, UNSW, Sydney; Director of the Renal and Metabolic Division in The George Institute for Global Health; and a clinical nephrologist in the Renal Dept. at Concord Repatriation and General Hospital. He works extensively in the ANZ Society of Nephrology in renal guidelines and clinical policy.
Professor Gallagher is interested in the use of multi-disciplinary approaches and innovation to address major non-communicable health threats and works extensively in renal guidelines and clinical policy. At The George Institute for Global Health, he serves as Program Director, Acute Kidney Injury and Trials.
Dr. Jha’s research is focused on understanding the health and societal impact of kidney diseases globally and developing affordable, scalable and sustainable primary and secondary prevention tools. He is Executive Director, The George Institute for Global Health, India; President of the International Society of Nephrology; and Chair of Global Kidney Health, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College of London. He serves on several international advisory boards, including membership of the WHO Expert Advisory Panel on Human Cell, Tissue and Organ Transplantation and the executive committee of the International Society of Nephrology.
Dr. Jha is recognized as a global expert on kidney disease, and focuses on emerging public health threats globally and in India. He has led research projects operating in more than 20 countries and works with a network of nephrologists to design and implement clinical studies for finding solution to the burden of kidney disease in India. He is particularly interested in using multi-disciplinary approaches and innovations to address the system level health and economic challenge posed to humanity by non-communicable diseases.
Dr. Wheeler’s research interests are in chronic kidney disease complications, specifically those that increase cardiovascular disease burden and/or accelerate kidney failure progression. He is Honorary Consultant Nephrologist at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust and Professor of Kidney Medicine at University College London. He has participated in developing and running several large-scale clinical trials testing lipid-lowering regimens, calcimimetics, and sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors in patients with chronic kidney disease. He has developed clinical practice guidelines for several organizations.
Dr. Wheeler is a Research Partner with The George Institute for Global Health and has developed clinical practice guidelines for several organizations, most recently for Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO), of which he is currently Co-Chair. He is Clinical Lead for Division 2 of the North Thames Clinical Research Network and heads a team of eight Clinical Trials Nurses/Practitioners at the Centre for Nephrology, Royal Free Hospital in London. He is Past President of the UK Renal Association, past chair of the UK Renal Registry and currently National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) National Specialty Lead for Nephrology.
