Kidney disease ends here.

Share your research in 60 seconds

This year marks our 60th anniversary. That’s 60 years of fighting to end kidney disease; 60 years of funding new discoveries; and now we challenge you to describe your research in 60 seconds!

We want to use this important milestone as an opportunity to shout about the amazing research we fund. We challenge you to communicate your research and why it matters in an accessible way to inform and inspire our supporters in a 60-second video.

You could get creative with an animation, use a series of slides or drawings, or simply talk to the camera — all ideas are welcome!
