KidneyCAN is dedicated to accelerating kidney cancer research. 

Our advocacy for the DOD Kidney Cancer Research Program resulted in appropriations of  $20 million in fiscal year 2020  for kidney cancer research. In 2016, this number was $0.

Our Kidney Cancer Research Summit brings translational researchers in kidney cancer together in an annual collaborative meeting.  Additionally, KidneyCAN’s  “Rock the Cure” events have raised over $1,000,000 toward private research support.

“Kidney cancer is the ideal sandbox for these new approaches, and without a doubt the same approach can, should and will be suitable for other cancers.”
