Jonathan Craig

Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and Paediatric Nephrologist, The Children’s Hospital at Westmead

Professor Jonathan Craig is a Paediatric Nephrologist at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead and holds a personal Chair in Clinical Epidemiology in the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney.

His research is focused on improving the evidence-base underpinning the prevention and treatment of kidney disease in children and adults. He has sought to achieve this by facilitating the development of a clean and comprehensive register of all randomized controlled trials in kidney disease, systematically evaluating and synthesising these trials into systematic reviews, and then integrating these systematic reviews into evidence-based guidelines. He has also conducted a variety of large scale clinical and population health research projects. Examples include studies designed to prevent the development of kidney disease in Aboriginal children, to prevent urinary tract infection in children, and more effective detection and treatment of people with kidney disease and cancer.
