The mission of our PKD Center is to promote research leading to a better understanding of PKD through the discovery of therapy targets and development of clinical trials to improve patient outcomes. The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases at the NIH awarded the Kansas PKD Center a five-year Center Grant (P30) that provides $5.4 million in funding to support our innovative biomedical research cores and a robust pilot and feasibility program.
