Feminisation in nephrology is very high and their consequence in clinical research appears as an interesting focus. Nephrologist women participate to working groups and research projects of the Sociedad Española de Nefrología in similar percentage than they contribute to society, more or less 40%. Nephrologist women are half of medicine PhD. However, nephrologists women are represented the fifth part in advanced projects within clinical research. If the nephrology is a speciality which will be able to keep up with the increasing of the assistance demand, the participation of the women in the clinical research is basic. Without looking down on the other topics, the clinical research within epidemiology and quality about the renal health could be particularly attractive for the women in nephrology.
