Research Overview

Currently no cure exists for Polycystic Kidney Disease. Scientists and researchers around the world are actively working to understand the genetic and pathological processes involved in PKD and find interventions and treatments that slow the progression of PKD, with the hope to one day cure this genetic condition. PKD Australia directly supports research into PKD by providing research grants and travel scholarships and forming strategic partnerships to access greater funding for PKD research.

We continue to give grants every year and these are integral in funding research that is changing the future of PKD, and are only possible thanks to the generous donations we receive.

PKD Australia is the only organisation dedicated to PKD in Australia, our vision is to fund research to find a cure for PKD. We connect, support, educate and advocate for Australians and their families affected by PKD.

DONATE NOW to ensure that we can continue to offer funding to the amazing researchers working on finding a cure for PKD.
