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 more than $15 million in research to improve the lives of patients.

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