welcome nephCure-pnrc GRANT PROGRAM

NephCure and The Pediatric Nephrology Research Consortium (PNRC) are very pleased to announce the NephCure-PNRC Pediatric Glomerular Disease Accelerator Grant Program and invite grant applications for both small and medium sized grants focused on Pediatric Glomerular Disease


The “NephCure and PNRC Pediatric Glomerular Disease Accelerator Grant Program: Delivering Cures in a Decade” was born out of a desire to promote and support bench, translational, and clinical research focused on pediatric glomerular disease. This program is intended to stimulate novel collaborative research within the pediatric nephology community that will lead to measurable evidence-based improvements in the care of children with glomerular disease.  This NephCure-PNRC collaborative effort will create the Pediatric Glomerular Accelerator Grant Program to fund research in the years 2022-2024.
