Dopamine

Vanderbilt University Medical Center investigators have demonstrated that dopamine produced in the kidneys is important for renal function, blood pressure regulation and life span. The kidney-specific dopamine system may be a therapeutic target for treating hypertension and kidney diseases such as diabetic nephropathy. Visit Journal of Clinical Investigation >

Grants are made annually in relatively significant amounts and have, to-date, helped achieve credible and tangible results in the fields in which the Foundation operates. In particular, we prioritize our grants into two targeted goal areas: kidney disease research and autoimmune disease research. We pay particular attention to translational research and the potential for personalized medicines.

Applications are reviewed by the executive committee and then vetted by the scientific advisory board, which consists of some of the brightest minds in the respective areas of interest.

Previous recipients include Norman Siegel, MD, Vivette D. D'Agati, MD, Pierre Ronco, MD, Ph.D., Detlef Bockenhauer, MD, Ph.D., Susan L. Hogan, Ph.D., MPH, and Laurence H. Beck, Jr., MD, Ph.D.

Advisors on grant selection include David J. Salant, M.D., Pierre Ronco, MD, PhD, Ronald Falk, MD, Ilya Hulinsky, M.D., PhD. Learn more on our Advisors page.

American Society of Nephropathy and The Halpin Foundation offer co-grants. Learn more on our ASN page.
