Call for Research Abstracts

PKDCON is a national conference bringing all members of the PKD community together. We’re asking PKD researchers to attend to virtually meet patients and their families and talk about their latest research. In addition, the Foundation is requesting submissions of research abstracts to be considered for the poster session as well as three short oral presentations with Q&A.

Topics of interest

  • Clinical Practice Application (e.g., patient-centered outcomes, reduction in complications, symptom management, non-renal manifestations, chronic pain, and quality of life);

  • Basic Science (e.g., genotype-phenotype correlations, signaling pathways, and the role of cilia in pathogenesis);

  • Health Care System (e.g., delivery, services, costs, safety);

  • Kidney Failure (e.g., advances in dialysis technologies, transplant outcomes, and immunosuppressive medications);

  • PKD in Children (e.g., ARPKD therapeutic pipeline, pediatric PKD disease management, congenital hepatic fibrosis, and other non-renal manifestations);

  • Lifestyle interventions (e.g., dietary recommendations, exercise, and stress management)


The submission deadline has passed. We expect to send acceptance notifications by mid-April.
