Program Goals and Scope
The PKD Foundation’s principal mission is to support basic, translational, and clinical research that will benefit patients with autosomal dominant and autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD and ARPKD).
Under this RFA, the PKD Foundation solicits research grant applications in the following areas:
- Basic research — to enhance understanding of molecular basis of PKD and its pathobiology
- Translational research — to accelerate development of predictive and therapeutic strategies for PKD
- Clinical research — such as small pilot studies
- Epidemiology/data analysis research — to conduct secondary data analyses utilizing existing database resources, or to develop new statistical methodologies or test hypotheses using existing data
