Executive Summary

The purpose of this initiative is to continue to support the Polycystic Kidney Disease Research Consortium. The consortium will develop new, validate and share resources including but not limited to cell lines, animal models, biospecimens, imaging, and clinical phenotyping. In addition, the consortium will administer an opportunity pool that will support the Innovation Program which will support the development of new resources and spark novel research ideas that will move the PKD field forward.
