In 1984, the PKD Foundation funded its first research grant for $25,000. In 2008, the PKD Foundation funded nearly $4 million in PKD research. In fact, PKD scientists funded by the PKD Foundation have progressed from identifying mechanisms of cyst formation and growth to conducting clinical trials to test therapies in humans - unprecedented success in biomedical research.
