Balboa United is a medical practice management services organization, designed to help medical practices develop and operate their practices.
Balboa Research – formerly California Institute of Renal Research (CIRR) – conducts clinical research for pharma and medical device companies related to Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), renal transplantation and dialysis vascular access.
The Principle Investigators of Balboa Research are nephrologists at Balboa Nephrology and the two organizations collaborate with study sponsors to support clinical studies and research that advance nephrology care.
