Kidney and Urological Disease Grants

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of renal and urologic disorders through the Kidney and Urological Disease Research Program Area. This program supports research into the pathophysiology of disease, the identification of unique/emerging risk factors for the development of renal disease, genetic/epigenetic/proteomic/metabolomic factors associated with disease development, predictors (biomarkers) of kidney damage and recovery, and identification of potential therapeutic drugs that reduce the pathology associated with disease.
