Discarded Tissue Donation

Researchers have made significant breakthroughs in recent years with the help of donated PKD kidneys. The PKD Foundation coordinates the donation of discarded PKD kidneys to research labs. These kidneys are living tissue and come from PKD patients who have had their kidneys removed.


If your kidney(s) will be removed and you wish to donate them to PKD research, please contact the PKD Foundation at 800.753.2873 or by email with the following information at least 10 days prior to the kidney removal.

  1. Date of surgery
  2. Number of kidneys being donated
  3. Hospital name and location (address, city, state, zip)
  4. Name and contact information of the person donating the kidney(s)
  5. Name and contact information of the transplant coordinator
  6. Name of the surgeon.
  7. How long the donor has been on dialysis (if applicable).
  8. Date of past transplant(s) (if applicable).
