This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) requests applications for Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Research and Translation Core Centers (RTCC). The RTCCs are expected to work collaboratively with the Central Coordinating Site (CCS) as part of a PKD Research Consortium and serve as a national resource for the larger research community. The RTCCs should develop and share research resources (e.g. reagents, tools etc.), services and expertise that would be difficult or impractical to support in individual labs.

The goal of the PKD Research Consortium is to create a framework for collaboration that develops and broadly shares research resources, core services and expertise to support innovation in research related to PKD. The RTCCs will develop and share research resources (e.g. data, samples, tissues, reagents, technologies, tools, software, animal models, etc.), core services (e.g. genotyping) and expertise that would be difficult or impractical to support in individual labs. All activities within the PKD Research Consortium are expected to address the overall goal of improving our understanding of the pathogenesis, progression, prevention and clinical management of PKD through enhanced sharing of research resources, core services and expertise to ensure the establishment of a robust research community. The RTCCs will be awarded to institutions with a strong track record of funded research in PKD that demonstrate a plan to engage new and established investigators including those from outside the traditional areas of PKD research. An RTCC may be located at a single institution or may span multiple institutions with complementary research bases. All RTCCs are expected to work collaboratively with other RTCCs within the PKD Research Consortium, the Central Coordinating Site and NIDDK program staff to achieve the goals of the program.

Concomitantly, a FOA (RFA-DK-19-011) is issued to support a Central Coordinating Site to provide centralized administrative support to the RTCCs. The RTCCs are expected to work collaboratively with the CCS as part of the PKD Research Consortium.
