The EuTRiPD project was all about bridging the generation gap and was a collaboration between new young scientists (Early Stage Researchers or ESRs funded by the EU Grant) and experienced principal investigators (PIs) in the host institutions. It's the aim of EuTRiPD to continue with bringing young and experienced researchers together in the field of Basic Research.

We are Katarzyna Bialas and Klaus Kratochwill and work with Zytoprotec in Vienna, Austria.
I am Katarzyna, the ESR and originally I am from Poland. I received my undergraduate training at the Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan before joining EuTRiPD in 2012. My long term career goal is to achieve the experience and knowledge necessary for the management of a research project/group working in the commercial field.
Outside my work in the laboratory I enjoy exploring places, events and persons that had/have impact on the present and historical time and I can be found online on Facebook.
I am Klaus, the PI and I have been involved in PD research for 7 years. The overall research areas in my laboratory include investigation of cytoprotective cellular mechanisms and applications of such approaches in peritoneal dialysis for development of novel solutions for PD.
Outside my lab and clinical work I enjoy sports such as mountainbiking, snowboarding and sailing and I can be found online on XING, LinkedInand ResearchGate.
Together our work in EuTRiPD looks at the investigation of cytoprotective additives in PD fluids on mesothelial cells, especially related to mechanisms aiming to overcome bioincompatibility of PD fluids.
We are Anna Machowska and Peter Rutherford, and Anna works in Baxter Healthcare, Brussels in Belgium while Peter works in Zurich, Switzerland.
I am Anna the ESR and originally I am from Poland. I received my undergraduate training at the University of Wroclaw, before joining EuTRiPD in 2012. My long term career goal is to become advanced in clinical research and experienced in implementation of novel therapeutic solutions into industry.
Outside my work in the laboratory I enjoy travelling, reading, meeting with my friends and during the winter time skiing and I can be found online onFacebook.
I am Peter, the PI and have been involved in PD research for 20 years. The overall research areas in Baxter include developing safe and effective therapies for patients CKD.
Outside my Baxter work I enjoy loud music, reading, walking (and certainly not skiing!) and rugby and I can be found online on Twitter (@drpeter r) and LinkedIn.
Together, our work in EuTRiPD looks at identifying patient and clinical needs and future trends in patient characteristics of CKD patients who could commence PD. This will identify new product developments which can meet patient needs and allow more patients to start and stay on PD.
I am Tanja van Wier, IÂ wasÂ the project manager of the EuTRiPD project and therefore responsible for the day-to-day management, monitoring and evaluating of the overall progress and timely deliverables of the project, and organizing the board meetings and training meetings. Furthermore I have developed and now maintainÂ the content of the website, Facebook- and Twitterpage.
