Millions to KI researchers for kidney research
Eighteen kidney researchers at Karolinska Institutet have been allocated grants totaling 3.2 million Swedish kronor from the Swedish Kidney Foundation, an announcement made in connection with World Kidney Day on March 9.
The foundation said it will distribute more than 6.9 million kronor to 41 research projects, and KI is receiving the largest share.
The money will support research on kidney disease from a range of perspectives including for example lipotoxicity in diabetic kidney disease, digital tools for monitoring kidney failure and kidney damage after urinary tract infection in children.
