PKD Foundation research grants program – 2014 project summaries
To support work being done to find treatments and a cure, we have awarded 15 research grants to PKD researchers. We will spend nearly $2.4 million over the next two years (2014-16) on these grants.
Drug repurposing is the process of developing new uses for existing drugs or drug candidates. This takes advantage of work that has been done for a different treatment use, thereby decreasing development costs and time to launch.
Our tissue donation program provides patients with an avenue to contribute to the advancement of our understanding of PKD. We coordinate donations of discarded PKD kidneys to research labs across the country.
