Minnesota KPMP CKD and Resilient Diabetes Recruiting Site


The Kidney Precision Medicine Project (KPMP) is a research study. Our goal is learn more about kidney injury and kidney disease. By studying your kidneys, we may learn more about why chronic kidney disease happens and how to treat it more effectively or even how to prevent it. Or participants have had diabetes for many years and have not clinical signs of chronic kidney disease. By studying your kidneys, we may learn more about the factors that help protect you from kidney disease. KPMP will last for at least 10 years.
