About the Grantham Symposium

To honor Dr. Jared Grantham in his retirement, the Kidney Institute at the University of Kansas Medical Center hosted the first Jared J. Grantham Symposium on May 7 - 9th, 2014 in Kansas City. Dr. Grantham's vision was to invite all of the Lillian Jean Kaplan award recipients to lead a forward-thinking and interactive forum to focus on future directions and innovations in polycystic kidney disease research. All twelve of the Kaplan Awardees were present at the inaugural symposium to give talks on on their vision of "The Future of PKD Research."  The Kidney Institute will continue to host the Grantham Symposium annually.

Sponsors

We greatly appreciate the generous support of the PKD Foundation as the Lead Sponsor of the Grantham Symposium. Additional support for the symposium is provided by the Peter T. Bohan Fund & the University of Kansas Medical Center.
