The Edren textbook is aimed at those with some medical knowledge who need to know the essentials on renal topics. Some medical knowledge is assumed but each section is intended to provide a short introduction to the topic.
The first version was conceived by Neil Turner and developed with Amit Adlakha, and Paddy Gibson (nephrologist, medical student, and nephrologist) in Edinburgh, in 2003. The content here is substantially rewritten and it may say at the foot of each page who the major author or latest editor is.
