The Scientific Operations Committee are looking for additional researchers and peer reviewers. These committees meet every other month for 1 hour to discuss ideas and move forward initiatives.

Email the CNTN project manager, Alicia at, if you have questions or would like to join the committee.


The Scientific Operations Committee primarily conducts peer review of investigator initiated research proposals brought forward by network members. They host bi-annual in-person meetings to discuss upcoming research proposals and are developing various types of pre- and post-review supports for investigators to increase the quality and quantity of research in Canada.







The Capacity Building Committee is focused on training and development of CNTN membership and the mentorship of new investigators and patient partners. Their mandate is to increase the number of people and resources available to conduct clinical trials in Canada and to increase the number of research ideas or questions developed by both patients and physicians.






The Communications and Engagement Committee’s mission is to increase the exposure of CNTN to the nephrology community across Canada thereby increasing membership to facilitate more collaboration with academic and non-academic sites across Canada and keeping that community informed about what is happening in the research community.
