Research is the beginning of all scientific advances.

It opens the door to a better future for patients living with kidney disease and their families. Our Foundation was established in 1964 by a group of people committed to addressing the lack of research being conducted into kidney-related diseases.

Some of the finest researchers in the world are in Canada and they depend on us to fund their important work. Our National Research Program has grown to become one of the most important sources of funding for scientists conducting kidney-related research, and we leverage the value of our investment to collaborate with other research-related organizations and funders to more broadly support research discoveries in Canada.
