The annual award is open to junior investigators who have not yet reached consultant grade or senior lecturer for non-clinical scientists, but have made a significant contribution to renal research.

Dr Bailey, who is a Clinical Lecturer at the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust, carries out studies that address inequalities and inequities in renal medicine.

Currently, Dr Bailey is opening a large multicentre questionnaire-based case-control study, funded by Kidney Research UK, which will investigate the developing changes from earlier research. Dr Bailey is also in the process of designing and applying for funding for a socioeconomically-tailored multicomponent complex intervention to support people with kidney disease to access a living-donor kidney transplant.

Dr Pippa Bailey said: “I am extremely grateful for and honoured to receive the Raine award this year. I am indebted to those from whose encouragement and expert supervision I have benefited, in particular Professor Yoav Ben-Shlomo, Dr Charlie Tomson, Dr Fergus Caskey, Dr Amanda Owen-Smith and Dr Simon Satchell.

“I will be using the award to attend a training course on co-design run by the Point of Care Foundation, developed from the King’s Fund programme, to aid with the development and refinement of the intervention we aim to trial.”
