About Dutch Kidney Foundation
The Dutch Kidney Foundation is committed to prevent kidney damage, to improve treatment of kidney diseases and to improve the quality of life for kidney patients and their families. We fund research projects and stimulate collaboration between patients, researchers and healthcare providers. Our ultimate dream is to cure kidney disease. To reach this goal we more and more invest in the development of concrete solutions like the portable artificial kidney and in 2019 we extend the possibilities for co-funding public private collaborations.
