Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common, life-threatening genetic diseases. The PKD Foundation funds research to find treatments and a cure, and provides information and support to people affected by PKD. The PKD Foundation is the only organization in the United States solely dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for polycystic kidney disease to improve the lives of those it affects. We do this through promoting programs of research, education, advocacy, support, and awareness on a national level, along with direct services in local communities across the country. Our vision is that one day no one will suffer from the full effects of PKD.
