Description

The Polycystic Kidney Disease Research Resource Consortium (PKD-RRC) was established to accelerate discovery in the field of PKD through innovation and resource sharing and to invigorate and expand the PKD research community. The goals of the PKD-RRC are: 1) To support a national PKD research effort by providing research resources, 2) To establish a framework for PKD-RRC collaborative research resource development, 3) To expand the PKD research workforce, 4) To develop a communication strategy that raises the visibility of the PKD-RRC and creates opportunities for collaboration, and 5) To implement educational programs that encourage constructive discourse and creative approaches to PKD science. The PKD-RRC is composed of three Research and Translation Core Centers (RTCCs), a Central Coordinating Site (CCS), and has NIDDK representation. The RTCCs are located at the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB), University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) and University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). The CCS, led by a team from UMB and the Yale University School of Medicine, offers pilot and feasibility grants, develops educational activities, and organizes an annual meeting and scientific symposium. The PKD-RRC offers a broad range of PKD related research resources including antibodies, human and mouse primary and immortalized cell lines, organoid and organ culture models, mouse and other animal models, assistance with protocols, and a repository of human biospecimens including serum, plasma, urine, urinary exosomes, kidney tissues, and clinical data that can be requested through the PKD-RRC website at pkd-rrc.org. This online portal also serves as a hub for dissemination of information relevant to PKD researchers including funding opportunities and educational events. The PKD Consortium develops new research resources of value to the PKD research community to advance our understanding of PKD pathogenesis. We welcome suggestions for the development of new research resources and reagents, and the opportunity to engage in discussions with the greater PKD community through Twitter @PkdResearch. In all its activities, the PKD-RRC recognizes and supports a culture of diversity and inclusion as being critical to ensuring a strong and innovative PKD research community.
