Polycystic Kidney Disease

The Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) program advances basic, translational, and clinical research relating to renal injury from cyst growth that occurs in PKD.  This program supports experimental approaches to evaluate the mechanisms underlying cystic diseases, including cell and molecular biology, genetics, and both mammalian and nonmammalian models of disease.  The portfolio promotes functional, structural, and imaging markers and strategies for diagnosis, early detection, severity, prognosis, and outcomes.
