For decades, the PKD Foundation has funded research aimed at accelerating treatments to patients so that one day no one will suffer the full effects of polycystic kidney disease. We are excited to announce that the Foundation has released a Request for Applications (RFA) for two fellowships, which will each be funded for $50,000 a year for two years.

In 2014, the PKD Foundation awarded 15 research grants to PKD researchers in 2014 in order to facilitate therapy development and ultimately find a cure. The PKD Foundation will spend nearly $2.4 million over the next two years on these grants through the Research Grant Program.
