Dr Ania Koziell

Research interests

Ania Koziell is a HEFC Senior Clinical Lecturer at King’s College London and Consultant Paediatric Nephrologist at Evelina Children's Hospital London. She trained in Paediatric nephrology at Great Ormond Street and in scientific research at University College London. This included a PhD in the Molecular Genetics of Nephrotic Syndrome and an Intermediate Wellcome fellowship. She was awarded a HEFC Senior Clinical lectureship and moved to King's College London in 2010.

Her current research interests include the genetics of primary glomerular disease, and the contribution of podocyte patholobiology to nephrotic syndrome. She is a PI in various rare disease consortia (BRIDGE and RaDaR) and her research involves deep phenotyping with correlation to genotype. She also studies the role of B lymphocytes in the pathogenesis of glomerular protein leak, and is a principle investigator for various interventional trials in nephrotic syndrome. In collaboration with the Academic Renal Unit in Bristol, she has recently been short listed for an MRC stratified medicine grant which will develop a national framwork for research into nephrotic syndrome to build a translational pipeline for nephrotic syndrome.
