NephCure Kidney International and PNRC
welcome nki-pnrc GRANT PROGRAM
NephCure Kidney International (NKI) and The Pediatric Nephrology Research Consortium (PNRC) are very pleased to announce the NKI-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 Kidney International 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 Kidney International-PNRC collaborative effort will create the Pediatric Glomerular Accelerator Grant Program to fund research in the years 2022-2024.
All applicant investigators will be expected to be Full Members of the PNRC prior to submission of the grant application. To become a PNRC member, please visit https://pnrconsortium.org/membership-signup
Scientific Review Committee
The scientific review committee will be comprised of 5 reviewers, including 1 reviewer recommend by the grant funder. The Scientific Review Committee will review applications based on criteria set forth in the RFA, and then score and rank each application. These recommendations will then be forwarded to the Advisory Review Committee for final determinations of award funding in each year.
Advisory Review Committee
The Advisory Review Committee will be comprised of 6 members, 3 from the PNRC and 3 from NephCure Kidney International. The purpose of the Advisory Review Committee is to assure the awardees’ proposed research adheres to the scope and purpose of the grant program. The Advisory Review Committee will review and make final funding decisions on all applications. One member from each organization will co-chair the Advisory Review Committee.
All awardees will be announced at the Fall PNRC Members meeting each year. After the announcement, all applicants will receive written notification of their funding status, along with reviewer comments.
The Co-Chairs of each committee will report at least annually to their respective organizations regarding the activities of the Pediatric Glomerular Accelerator Grant Program.
