Everyone should have the chance to take part in innovative research that will improve kidney health now and in the future. That’s why Can-SOLVE CKD is creating a brand new digital platform to connect Canadians to the latest kidney health innovation.

The new portal, which we expect to launch later this spring, will be your chance to learn about and get involved in research that responds to the needs and perspectives of patients. From a user-friendly website, you will be able to create an account, select the topics that most interest you, and search up-to-date listings of kidney research opportunities across Canada. The portal will connect you with researchers looking to work with people like you. You will be informed about new opportunities to get involved and receive updates to help you see the impact of your participation in real time.

We need your help!

The portal needs a name that is memorable, distinctive, and captures the spirit of innovation and discovery that drives health research. First and foremost, this name should speak to patients and reflect the exciting opportunity to get involved in research.

We are asking for your help in finding just the right name. You can submit your suggestions below or add to the ideas submitted by others. We have included some draft messages and keywords about the portal’s goals and vision that may help spark your thinking. Thank you!
