PKD Foundation Research Request For Application (RFA)

One of the PKD Foundation's principal goals is the development of clinical interventions for the treatment of polycystic kidney disease. Under this RFA, proposals in the following areas will be accepted:


  • Basic laboratory research aimed at increasing understanding of the genetic and pathological processes involved in PKD
  • Research with an obvious or direct potential to accelerate the development of potential therapies

Donors have made special funding opportunities available for research in the following area:


  • Research specifically focused on the development of treatments for autosomal recessive PKD (ARPKD)
  • Research conducted in Canada (made possible by a collaboration with the PKD Foundation of Canada)
  • Research with implications for polycystic liver disease (PLD)

Award amounts will equal $80,000 direct costs per year for two years, for a total grant award of $160,000. Second-year funding is dependent upon availability of funds. The funds awarded must be used solely for the purposes specified in the proposal submitted to and approved by the PKD Foundation as executed by the investigator and institution in strict compliance with the budget attached to the application.
