Welcome to Kidneeds. The purpose of KIDNEEDS is to support families living with C3 Glomerulopathy (C3G) and to fund research focused on this disease. To achieve the first goal, KIDNEEDS hosts an annual C3G Family conference for families living with this rare disease. These two-day events held in Iowa City, IA, are a source of community and support, an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in the treatment of C3G, and a chance to become familiar with on-going C3G-focused research. To achieve the second goal, KIDNEEDS encourages clinical and basic science research initiatives that will lead to a treatment for C3G by financially supporting grants focused on C3G. Appropriate areas of investigation include the diagnosis, management and pathogenesis of this disease. Research studies can involve physiological, biochemical, pharmacological, physical, genetic, or pathological investigations.
