Better kidney health through patient-oriented research
The Can-SOLVE CKD research program comprises 18 multidisciplinary projects spanning basic science, clinical and population health research.
These projects are organized around three themes identified in collaboration with patients, health care providers, and policy-makers over three years of priority-setting discussions:
Together, the research projects will close existing gaps in kidney disease knowledge and care to deliver better health outcomes for patients. The Can-SOLVE CKD Network will achieve this ambitious vision through patient engagement and by integrating isolated pockets of basic, clinical and translational kidney research excellence across Canada.
