The Kidney Research Centre (through the The Ottawa Hospital Foundation)

Raise money for The Kidney Research Centre (through the The Ottawa Hospital Foundation)

Established in 2000, the Kidney Research Centre (KRC) is Canada’s first research facility devoted exclusively to investigating diseases that attack the kidney. It is affiliated with the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, the University of Ottawa and The Ottawa Hospital. KRC scientists and clinician researchers are taking a lead role nationally in developing new strategies to improve detection and treatment of renal disease. They are also committed to training the next generation of kidney research leaders, including graduate students and research fellows from Canada and around the world.

Most kidney diseases are characterized by their relentless progression to kidney failure and, unfortunately, there are few treatments that reliably halt this course. The number of Canadians being treated for kidney failure has tripled over the past two decades and experts are predicting a growing epidemic of chronic kidney disease in Canada.

The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Ottawa Hospital - Canada's largest academic health science centre.
