Shaping the future of pediatric medicine

The University Children’s Hospital is an independent institution with a 150-year history of successful pediatric research and an official teaching and research mandate from the University of Zurich. As the largest academic pediatric hospital in Switzerland, we are working tirelessly to translate today’s pediatric research into tomorrow’s standard of care.



The Division of Nephrology is responsible for the treatment and care of children with kidney disease from birth to the end of growth, usually around the age of 20. The scope of our research includes all congenital, inherited, and acquired diseases of the kidneys and urinary tract.
