PKD Research Resource Consortium Annual Symposium

September 13 - September 14, 2022

Location: Virtual


Polycystic kidney diseases (PKD) comprise a group of renal cystic disorders that are accompanied by a broad array of extrarenal manifestations. These disorders are a major cause of morbidity in adults and children. Autosomal dominant PKD is the most common single gene disorder that results in end-stage kidney disease. Autosomal recessive PKD is rare but more severe, resulting in perinatal mortality in 30–40 percent of affected infants. Although the most common causative genes for PKD (PKD1, PKD2, and PKHD1) were identified more than 2 decades ago, we still lack effective therapies, and major questions remain in our understanding of disease pathogenesis. The PKD RRC seeks to address these gaps by creating a collaborative framework that develops and shares research resources to support innovation in PKD research.
