One of the PKD Foundation’s principal goals is the development of clinical interventions for the treatment of polycystic kidney disease. Traditionally, the Foundation pursued this goal through the support of basic laboratory research aimed at increasing understanding of the genetic and pathological processes involved in PKD. Proposals of this type will be accepted under this RFA; however, proposals with more obvious or direct potential to accelerate the development of potential therapies will be viewed more favorably. Proposals focusing on childhood PKD are also encouraged. It is anticipated that 12 two-year grants will be funded.
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.
Applicants must have an M.D. or Ph.D. degree and hold a faculty appointment at the institution where the research will be conducted. Applicants need not be United States citizens. No fellowships will be awarded under this RFA, although salary for a fellow may be included.
