Historic research funding to study and improve kidney disease with the announcement of the new Can-S
The Federal Government announced this week that the "Canadians Seeking Solutions and Innovations to Overcome Chronic Kidney Disease (Can-SOLVE CKD)" was one of five successful research networks to receive $12.5 million of funding through the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR). Can-SOLVE CKD, led by Dr. Adeera Levin (picture above) and Dr. Braden Manns, is Canada’s biggest effort to date to improve kidney health and the care of those with chronic kidney disease. Research will focus on a number of elements, including changes in care delivery, improvement of treatment therapies, and organ donation. This network is also supported by The Kidney Foundation of Canada and Canadian Society of Nephrology, who helped raise an additional $46.5 million by 30 organizations to support the project over five years.
The CNTRP is proud to partner and support this important new network and we look forward to building strong research and collaborative links to improve outcomes for patients across Canada.
