The Norman S. Coplon Extramural Grants for Clinical Applied Research

The Norman S. Coplon Extramural Grant Program has become one of the nation's largest private research endowments for kidney disease treatment. Since 2000, the program has funded over 15 million dollars in research to improve the lives of patients.

The program includes an annual symposium where Coplon Grant researchers share findings with and receive constructive feedback from peers and members of the APCR Committee.
