Opportunity Pool Funding

Recent advances in multi-scale interrogation of human tissue and single cells have set the stage for precision medicine to be applied to kidney disease. The objectives of the Kidney Precision Medicine Project are to ethically and safely obtain and evaluate human kidney biopsies from participants with Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), create a kidney tissue atlas, define disease subgroups, and identify critical cells, pathways and targets for novel therapies. Learn more about the KPMP protocols and processes.

The Opportunity Pool process

The Opportunity Pool is overseen and managed by the Central Hub which is responsible for the following:

  • Facilitating communication with applicants
  • Recruitment of external peer reviewers
  • Correspondence with reviewers
  • Collection of the critiques
  • Disbursement and accounting of funds

The Central Hub closely supervises the external peer review process and serves as a resource for potential applicants.

KPMP Travel Grants

The Kidney Precision Medicine Project supports professional development opportunities for early-career investigators. One such opportunity allows investigators to attend KPMP Steering Committee meetings and present posters on their research as relevant to KPMP.

Early-stage investigators who attended past meetings have learned about KPMP protocols in development, scientific technologies to be applied to the interrogation of kidney biopsy tissue, the role of patient and community engagement in KPMP, and how data management and visualization tools will be applied to the creation of the Kidney Tissue Atlas.

In addition to the opportunity to present during the meeting’s poster session, early-stage investigators are awarded a travel stipend. Interested candidates must submit an NIH biosketch and an abstract of their research. Abstracts will undergo a peer-review process for scoring.

Current Funding Opportunities

Please note, the application for all KPMP Opportunity Pool FOAs (except for KPMP Travel Grants) is the standard PHS 398 form.
