About Dr Rhys Evans

Dr Evans studied medicine at Cambridge University and University College London Medical School, qualifying in 2007. He undertook general medical training in London and Melbourne, Australia prior to undergoing specialty training in Nephrology within the North Thames training scheme.

His practice encompasses all aspects of general nephrology including the investigation of acute and chronic kidney disease in addition to the management of patients on dialysis. He has sub-speciality expertise in transplantation and the management of patients with inherited and acquired tubular kidney diseases. His transplant work includes donor and recipient assessment as well as all aspects of post transplant care. He is deputy lead of the UCL Centre for Transplantation and is principal investigator on a number of clinical trials. He has a friendly approach to medicine and strongly believes in shared decision making with patients and their families.

Dr Evans is an academic clinician with a diverse research portfolio. He was awarded a PhD from UCL for translational work investigating the impact of salt on the immune system during which he provided the first description of immunodeficiency in patients with inherited salt-losing tubulopathies. He continues to investigate changes in immunity in patients with tubular kidney disease and hypertension. He was awarded the UCL Oliver Wrong Prize for an outstanding contribution to Renal Physiology research in 2021. He is funded by Kidney Research UK to investigate the impact of salt on immune responses in kidney transplant recipients and leads a number of clinical projects that aim to improve outcomes for transplant patients. His other main focus is aimed at improving the care of patients with kidney disease in low-resource settings, which he has done in a number of different settings worldwide. He has previously worked as a clinical lecturer at the University of Malawi and has published widely on the epidemiology of kidney disease in Africa and novel tools to detect it.
