UKRO’s mission is fundraising to support medical research and education related to the causes, treatment, and eradication of all forms of kidney disease.
On September 19, 2012, USC Keck School of Medicine and UKRO announced that they had entered into an agreement to establish and jointly fund the USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center (KRC). The KRC aspires to be a premier center nationally for kidney research. Research at the KRC will be the primary beneficiary of UKRO’s fundraising for the foreseeable future.
UKRO (University Kidney Research Organization) is a U.S. and California tax-exempt organization/Federal Tax I.D. No. 03-0459723. UKRO was formerly known as University Kidney Disease Research Associates.
