NSRP Funding Announcement
The UMB ICTR Announces a Special Call for Applications for Two Funding Opportunities Focused on the Physiology, Pathophysiology and/or Treatment of Nephrotic Syndrome: A Two-Year Pilot Grant Award and a KL2 Mentored Career Development Award
The University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) invites innovative, translational research applications that address issues of prime concern directly relevant to Nephrotic Syndrome (NS). NS is a manifestation of kidney diseases caused by increased glomerular permeability and defined by massive proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, and edema. The disorder may be caused by a disease specific to the kidneys (primary cause) or secondary to a systemic disorder such as diabetes, lupus, infections, or genetic disorders. NS can affect children and adults of all ages and is often associated with various complications such as hyperlipidemia, thromboembolism, increased risk of infection and in some cases end stage renal failure.
