What is the goal of the our website?
The PKD Foundation was created for the express purpose of raising funds and support of research efforts for polycystic kidney disease. Over time, we have attempted to stretch their resources to include some information and education about PKD. This website is one of many tools used to help get basic information to the public, while also maximizing the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for research. The primary purpose of the website is to serve as an "online brochure" that allows individuals to learn the basics about PKD, the Foundation and its focus on research efforts. It also serves as a resource to find support groups in major cities across the country, as well as related health links on the Internet (though not maintained, operated or endorsed by the PKD Foundation). Medical professionals may also learn about the grant application process and the types of studies that have been funded so they might become involved in the fight to END PKD.
How often is the website updated?
Our website is updated as new information becomes available - sometimes this is once a day, sometimes, once a week. To receive up-to-the-minute PKD information, including updates on clinical trials, sign up for our emails.
