Citation on election

Professor John Bertram is internationally recognised for his outstanding research contributions in kidney developmental biology, developmental origins of kidney and cardiovascular health and disease, and quantitative imaging. He has shown that low nephron number in kidneys is linked to high blood pressure and kidney disease in animals and several human populations. These findings have contributed to initiatives to develop approaches for the non-invasive imaging and counting of glomeruli which is anticipated to improve clinical management of people with, and at risk of developing, kidney disease and hypertension. He has played significant roles in mentorship of young students and scientists.
