The Division of Nephrology and Hypertension has both laboratory-based and clinical-based research programs that are supported by funds from the National Institute of Health, industry and intramural sources. In addition, the Division has had a National Institutes of Health sponsored research training program since 1975 with the goal of preparing scientists for a career in academic Nephrology/Hypertension and basic renal sciences.
The Division also sponsors innovative programs for both patient-oriented clinical and basic science researchers. Collaborative clinical and research efforts are ongoing with renal pathologists, renal radiologists, urologists and the Mayo Clinic Transplant Center.

Since 1988, the Mayo Nephrology Collaborative Group (MNCG) has developed and conducted studies aimed at improving treatment of renal parenchymal diseases, which are kidney diseases. Through its involvement in MCNG, the clinic offers patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials when appropriate.
