Grant Description

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to establish the second phase of the Chronic Kidney Disease Biomarkers Consortium (CKD BioCon) through a cooperative agreement. The CKD BioCon was established as a cooperative agreement in September 2009 as a result of RFA-DK-08-015 [Chronic Kidney Disease Biomarker Discovery and Validation Consortium (U01)] to discover, develop, validate and qualify biomarkers based on existing stored or reposited biosamples from well-characterized CKD patients with longitudinal follow-up. The current CKD BioCon consists of six Participating Centers (PCs) and is actively engaged in multiple research protocols. The next phase of the CKD BioCon will continue a multicenter consortium to identify new biomarkers or rigorously validate already identified biomarkers for chronic kidney diseases, consisting of successful applicants to this FOA.Application for the second phase of the CKD BioCon will be open to members of the original consortium as well as new investigative teams.
