Research

In 2022, the ADPKD Registry reached nearly 3,000 participants. Their data will drive new treatments and research toward a cure. Also helping accelerate treatments is the Polycystic Kidney Disease Outcomes Consortium. Since their summit, four papers have been published which will frame the approach and development of ARPKD and ADPKD treatments for the next 5+ years.

Advocacy

This year, donations helped us get Congress to designate September 4 as National PKD Awareness Day. With this spotlight on PKD, we can drive legislation to protect our community, starting with the Living Donor Protections Act.

Education

In 2022, we created the Education Advisory Panel (EAP). The EAP advises us on the education the PKD community wants to see, providing better resources for patients and healthcare providers.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Thanks to our supporters, we established the Peer Ambassador program to connect underserved communities to the PKD Foundation. Ensuring that every corner of the PKD community can find the care and resources they need.

Since 1982, we’ve proudly funded more than 1,300 research projects and leveraged $1.5B in research funds, while serving our local communities across the country. We’re inspired by our mission. And driven by our vision.
