The NUGoKidney Pilot and Feasibility (P&F) Grants Program supports cross-disciplinary translational research for the identification and successful implementation of novel therapeutics for kidney disease. These pilot funds provide eligible investigators with the support and the resources needed to enhance opportunities for obtaining additional external funds, introduce new disciplines to the field of nephrology, and promote synergy and collaborations among researchers of the NUGoKIDNEY Center and beyond.
NUGoKidney’s P&F Program Mission
- Fund research with high translational potential;
