Parminder Judge


Senior Clinical Research Fellow

Parminder K Judge is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow based in the Renal Studies Group at the Clinical Trial Service Unit & Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU). There, she aims to develop her knowledge and experience of clinical trials, testing new treatments aimed at managing and reducing the progression of chronic kidney disease.

Parminder studied medicine at the University of Birmingham. After completing her core medical training in Leicester, she undertook specialty training in nephrology in the Oxford rotation. In 2013, she took time ‘out-of-programme for research’ to work on clinical trials.

She worked primarily on the UK HARP-III trial which compared the effects of sacubitril/valsartan (a novel angiotensin-receptor neprilysin inhibitor) with irbesartan (an angiotensin receptor blocker) on in 400 people with chronic kidney disease. The trial formed the basis of her PhD thesis.

She also undertook the adjudication of clinical outcomes for the 3C trial and provided clinical support for the REVEAL and ASCEND trials. She participated in epidemiological analyses of the SHARP trial assessing the effects of blood pressure on cardiovascular outcomes. Parminder used HES data to establish and quantify previously undocumented hepatorenal complications in polycystic kidney disease and, to determine the risk of many established complications of the disease.

After completing her nephrology specialty training in 2020, Parminder returned to CTSU to work on clinical trials in nephrology and cardiovascular disease, including the EMPA-KIDNEY trial. She continues to practice nephrology within the Oxford Kidney Unit and has an active interest in teaching clinical trainees, undergraduate and postgraduate students.
