USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center

Inside of USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center

The USC/UKRO Kidney Research Center (KRC) was named in Sept. 2012 with a gift pledge of $3.5 million from the University Kidney Research Organization (UKRO), a Los Angeles based philanthropic group. The onboarding of the new KRC Director, Kenneth R. Hallows, MD, PhD, who is an internationally recognized nephrology physician-scientist, brought the center into operation. The center has assembled a growing team of dedicated researchers, physician scientists, and administrative staff to explore acute kidney injury, hypertension, polycystic kidney disease, acid regulation, kidney cancer, and more.
