AAKP's role in Clinical Trials and Market Research

AAKP supports innovation in the kidney space. We are actively involved in market research - to share the patient voice and experience with renal companies and clinical trials  - to create more and better treatment options for kidney patients, so they can achieve their aspirations.

You may have heard the term “clinical trials” but wonder what that means. Is a clinical trial something you can participate in? What do you need to do to get started? We have pulled together some information that you might find helpful as you decide whether you would like to participate in a clinical trial.
