The research projects we fund are related to many areas of kidney disease including transplantation, dialysis, kidney biology, diabetes, high blood pressure, genetics and urology.

Our review procedure for assessing research applications is rigorous. Funding criteria include scientific excellence and relevance to our mission. Applications are evaluated by volunteers from the health care and scientific communities, all of whom are recognized leaders in their field. A review committee ranks each application and determines which proposals are to be funded.
