The group is ­involved in research projects, funded by Kidney ­Research UK, which could lead to a better understanding of kidney disease.

The charity is launching its Go Purple ­campaign to coincide with World Kidney Day on March 13 to help raise cash for better treatments.

The researchers are encouraging everyone, from office workers to school children, to ­organise purple-themed events.

Liz McGuiness, ­Kidney Research UK's Fundraising Manager for Scotland, said: "­People in Glasgow can help make a real difference to the lives of those with kidney ­disease by getting ­behind our Go Purple campaign."
