GAO Report: Kidney Disease Research Funding and Priority Setting

"Kidney diseases are devastating the lives of millions of Americans; innovation has not kept pace with the magnitude of the diseases; and the current underinvestment in kidney research is detrimental to patients and taxpayers. A new Government Accountability Office (GAO) report highlights the magnitude of the gap between our investment in innovation to treat and cure kidney diseases and the outsized burden it places on every American." Eleanor Lederer, MD, FASN, President, American Society of Nephrology.
