Can-SOLVE CKD Phase 2 will translate research into better kidney health for Canadians

The Can-SOLVE CKD Network is Canada’s largest-ever kidney research initiative. Since 2016, this national partnership of patients, scientists, and health care professionals has advanced innovative kidney care solutions to help the millions of Canadians affected by chronic kidney disease.

A new investment announced August 5 by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) supports the continuation of this transformative work through 2027. Can-SOLVE CKD will receive $3.75 million in new funding from CIHR matched by more than $8 million raised through the generous support of more than 60 partners. This funding, more than $11.8 million in total, enables the network to mobilize innovations in diagnosis, treatment, and care that will enhance kidney health.

Request for Proposals: Knowledge Keepers in Research Video Production

Can-SOLVE CKD Network is seeking the services of a BC-based Indigenous owned video production company to produce a series of 7 short videos about inclusion of Knowledge Keepers in research.

These videos will accompany the Knowledge Keepers in Research virtual booklet. This virtual booklet is a component of the Wabishki Bizhiko Skaanj Learning Pathway, a novel training resource developed by the Indigenous Peoples’ Engagement & Research Council (IPERC).

Annual Network Update looks towards Phase 2

We hope network members are finding some time to enjoy the summer. With September just a few weeks away, the time is fast approaching for our Annual Network Update on Friday, September 23. We will share highlights of the past year and some insights into plans for Can-SOLVE CKD Phase 2.

The Network Update will take place following the next installment in our capacity building workshop series “Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Kidney Research” with Dr. Sofia Ahmed.

Network members should check their emails for more information. If you would like to attend, please reach out to
