Research brings hope for better treatment options and a better quality of life for patients and their families. It is thanks to the tireless efforts and commitment of thousands of dedicated researchers across the country and around the world that important research in kidney-related disease is possible.

We uphold our commitment to research excellence through research grants, fellowships and scholarships awarded to investigators from all scientific disciplines. In fact, we provide over $3 million in funding every year to kidney-related research conducted in Canada.

We also support young researchers through KRESCENT (Kidney Research Scientist Core Education and National Training Program), For more information on KRESCENT awardees visit
